Alright, it's less than two weeks away now. Who is going to be hitting the Indiana venue for the CAG Invitational?

I've got that weekend off work, but I'm supposed to be at a mandatory meeting on saturday morning, so I'm kinda between a rock and a hard place. At this point I'm thinking of just blowing the meeting off and heading to Indiana.

I was going to try and make it but it is looking now like a big no. I am thinking about a career change, and to test the waters I have got a decent party to do for Red White and Boom downtown. That will be the last weekend before this event to do some preping for it.

This event sounded like a lot of fun, I really wanted to go since I will be missing the tappan lake get together next weekend. I hope there will be a heavy Ohio presence at this event, we gotta show those Hoosiers that us Ohio guys do know how to fish for the elusive Bugle Mouth bass.

I have to plan a trip over to West Side Tackle in the next week or so also. Ak, do you happen to recall the hours for this place?

As long and the bank space isn't muddy and atrocious then I'll be there. I am not going because there is a potential for 30s (though that would be nice). I am going because it is a national CAG event with a chance to meet new people, get new ideas, and possibly get some national CAG recognition in the tourney.

I just got back from a trip to West Side Tackle in Indy. They have about an eight foot section of carp stuff. Most of it is stuff that Paul sellers. The only X2 products I saw were rig and spool pouches, and some other small pouch that I can't recall. The guy at the counter didn't have any idea what was going on with the ordering of carp products so I have no ETA.

Also don't expect to get out of state licenses there unless you only want a one day pass.

Final Roll call for this event.

I will be leaving at 3:15a and hope to be there before 6:30a. This is going to be another long haul one day trip, but it should be worth it. Now I need to get off my lazy ass and make some bait so I may have a chance...

Tim,

Getting ready to walk out the door in just a few to head over. Should be a fun weekend. Just got off the phone with Ak. The lake looks AWESOME....but there is a little bit of mud along the shorelines. Shouldn't be a problem though. He said to bring boots or old shoes......I plan to go barefooted if needed :D I'd say a piece of carpet or cardbaord will do just fine if needed.

it sucks that my cell phone doesn't work down here.. just got back from fishing a lake nearby here call elkcreek lake..saw bunch or fish splashing around..but no takers..talked to a couple locals and they said to also give patoka lake a try..they both said biig fish there..
lake salinda itself seems to be muddy or silt bottom..when i was out there checking out the depth for gilbert i found that my sinker was sinking into them pretty good..they are still pumping out the water from the lake as we speak..lots of access spots. that carpet/cardboard idea is great..bring some over..:) .LOTS of people are fishing this lake for cats..the guy i spoke to said he caught a 20lbs channel out of there last week..he was using chicken breast strips marinate in strawberry flavor... thats a nice channel im sure..this town ain't too bad..got mickey D's pizza hut and some other fast food joint..
see you all down here ..
