    Is Indian Lake worth a two hour trip to fish from the bank?

    If you get your motor running we won't have to fish from the bank.
     
  4. Haven’t been Indian Lake in several years, and that was in the fall. Hope to put the boat in the water in the next week or so … any info on spring conditions will be appreciated

  7. I live 20min from the lake and fish it all the time, but my opinion is it's not even worth a 20 min drive more less a 2 hour drive if you have to fish from the bank. But at the same time, I've done great from the bank myself.

    Gas at over $3 a gallon, ain't no fish worth a 2 hour drive unless you talk to someone who says they are jumpin in the bucket for ya.
     
  8. as soon as this water gets down you can catch them alot closer to home, a two hour drive is a long way to catch fish that you can catch ten minutes away

    Hey gone you can't talk to me like that!
     
  10. Just talked with a couple diff. sources which say the bite below the spillway is doing pretty well. I have not personally witnessed this,but giving it a shot tomorrow. the water in the river has come down a good bit, and have been told the saugs are picking up. good luck!
     
  11. The crappie at Indian were ok last year the big change was the channel cats. They were big and there were a lot of em. I only fish from the bank in 2 places and it takes me an hour to get their. If your going to driver 2 hrs, make it a weekend and stay at one of the camp grounds.

    The lake has greatly improved since they spent the past few years dredging the lake, St. Marys on the other hand dont bother with it.
