    I know this is short notice, but i am seeing if anyone wants to hit the White river this morning. I'm going out after i get off work. I'm also located down in Martinsville and i'm willing to drive a little bit. If not i can be found at the IPL dam off of S.R.67 just north of Martinsville.

    I'll check the post before I go out. I'll be leaving the house at 8:30-8:45ish. If anything I'll have a report the section when i get back.

    Check my "weekdays off" or "weekdays off for Patoka" under lakes/res.
    I'd like to try the river just outside of seymore.

    Oh man... Workin' that graveyard shift eh?
    Did you do any good today? The rivers up, then down, then up, then down, then... and this still cool water makes a Pylodictis olivaris bite kinda hard to get right now.

    Yeah I've been doing this Thirds thing for a little over a year now. As far as the fishing today, I got 3 channels and about 15 brown bullheads. The channels were little(2 to 3 pounds) and the bullheads just pissed me off. All were under 12 inches. I caught everything on nightcralwers. I was trying to get some gills and the bullheads were just to thick. The rivers is going down but the flats were still soft and I couldn't get where I wanted to.

    Hopefully I can get back out this weekend inbetween the rain and get me some bait or I'll just start chunking up the darn bullheads.

    If anybody wants to meet up this weekend shoot me a PM, or post back here.

    Hey- I'll take you up on that if I can- and I wouldn't mind stocking up on some bull heads either- I can't ever find them.

    Danny, that sounds like great bait opportunity! I've never used them but I've heard the flatties love a nice bullhead...plus the can live FOREVER on a hook!!!

    Yeah guys feel free to come on down anytime you feel like it. Shoot me a PM and i'll give you number.

    Here is a link to google maps where it's at. It's about 10 miles south of Mooresville on S.R. 67 at the IPL dam. The bullheads are thick in the creek(Sycamore creek) all the way up to the river. As of right now I don't have any way to keep them alive so I'm catching them when i'm out there and keeping them in a wire basket in the water. There is parking along side of the highway and paths to different areas on the river right there.

    A dozen nightcrawlers and your set. Like i said i caught about 15 in a little under an hour trying for some gills. I wanted gills so i could chunk'em up and try for some nice channels.

    If you want nice channels Danny just go get you some shrimp.. Its a little expencive for bait, but you throw it on a 7/0 or 8/0 gamma circle your set. just tight line and wait for them to load up and bring'em in.. I may have to come on down.. Im hopeing the rain isnt whats predicted and the river goes back down.. Im gonna show RiverBuggy4x4 how to get those wipers out of there.. Man they are fun..
