    Im from Muncie, but have hunted and done some fishing in this area for years. Most of the fishing was done in the tributaries. I bought a boat and wanted to fish the big river and catch monster cats. My first trip there last year netted my biggest flathead ever at 40lbs. We caught many other flatheads and some small blues. We are going to go again this June.

    There are some monster cats in the Madison area. Go to Member Reports and check out the Catch of the Day thread. Its Vern Parrish (vlparrish) and that is his home stomping waters so you can check out the cats he catches around that area.
