Are you fishing my spot? Just kidding. Paradise point is where I fish. I know we have talked. I have the tan GMC with camo. Bobby

By next weekend my very first boat will be finished. It's just a 14 footer with a 7 horse Evinrude. I've fished Indian alot with my Dad and Uncle in their boats. We mostly fish out of Blackhawk but don't really fish alot of the Lake. I just have 1 question: What is my best options as far as Launching? I'd really like to be more versatile in areas that I can fish. Is there a map That I can pick up anywhere with all the launch sites and other places identified?

you can get a nice lake map at spend-a-day marina. there is the blackhawk ramp(great food at the resterant), lakeview ramp, moundwood ramp, a ramp at chippawa, and a small ramp back in the islands past moundwood. that is the only ones i can think of. bobby

ndcocherl, there are lots of places to catch saugeyes at Indian. They can be picky, though, so the best advice is to watch for boats that are trolling or drifting in open areas or anchored over the deeper holes, and join in the fray. Crankbaits, blade baits, worm harnesses and sometimes minnows on the bottom. If what you are doing isn't working, try something else.

Redhunter1012, you can download and save/print maps of Indian and lots of other lakes at ODNR's website:

http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/Home/Fish...8/Default.aspx

These are formatted to print up to 11 x 17, but can be any size you set for your printer. One note about boat ramps--both Indian Lake maps that are available there neglect to show the boat ramp on Pew Island, on the right just after crossing the bridge from Seminole. One map shows a public ramp on Seminole (wrong location), and the other shows only a parking lot at the Pew ramp location.

One other note for new Indian Lake boaters. Keep an eye on the weather, particularly if the ramp you use is on open water, like the Lakeview Harbor ramp, or across the lake from where you are fishing. Even moreso if you use a smaller boat. Indian can whip up some impressive waves in a very short period of time.

Good luck!

I'll be out there tomorrow morning . We took 11 a couple of tuesday evenings ago . Then the dreaded coldfronts and chilly downpours probably turned them off.

I'll be out there tomorrow morning with 3 of us on trip #2 for the year! This time with my GPS,all my planerboard gear,and walkie talkie. Anybody out there tomorrow morning,give me a buzz on channel 10 .

Trollin'

2 of us took 9 saugeye this morning . Threw back 2 dinks and 2 half dinks.One of those half dinks was 13" long,but only an inch in diameter.Very skinny and mutated looking. Anywho,they were all in the 15" range except for 1 that went 21". All using bomber B02 firecraws and bandit 100 taco salad. The bite died off after 8:30 a.m.. Same spot as a week and a half ago.My cousin kept 2 of the 3 white bass,15" female was the biggest.He also got the 5 lb flattie on the taco salad.

Water Temp in main lake was 70 degrees. A lot warmer than I expected after the barrage of coldfronts last week.It's going to be a very good season!
