Guide Jon Conklin, who reports for the Fishing Report from Beaver Lake, went fishing with another guide, Jeff Wilson, and caught this striper last week on the lake. He says the bite is strong early in the morning using bream and brood minnows, and some great topwater is going on, too, at Beaver Lake.
