  2. Fishing Reports - Out of State
    July 28th. I headed to a new lake I learned about the other week. I took my wireless fish finder to map out how deep it was and to try to locate where the fish were holding. I stop at a nearby convenient store to get bait. They were sold out of all their bait. I therefore had to depend on...

    It has been a few years since I have been to Indian Lake to fish and I'd like to try my luck at catching a few Crappie. Was thinking of fishing near Long Island and was wondering if it would be feasible/practical to drop in a kayak in at the large pull-off at Long Island? Thanks - gonelong

    Anyone try fishing the marinas on the lake for crappie this week? Might head up to vermillion and see if they’re around yet. Tried a few weeks back water was still too cold for spawn.

    I fished with my family at West Branch years ago and would like to do so again. Can someone tell me what are the best times of day to catch crappie? Is it like other fish, morning and near sunset? I hate to drive out there for an unproductive day, thanks!

    Headed out to LaDue today and fished the causeway. Started at ~ 10:00am. Only landed 1 largemouth bass around 1:00pm on a "gizzard shad" colored square bill. Seen loads of crappie which is mainly what my friend was fishing for but they weren't biting.
