    Will be visiting my parents in Evansville in the middle of August. Have caught not a flathead in Indiana since 1992. If any of you fellow members wanna get together, please let me know.

    My parents live behind the airport. I lived there my whole life until 1997. I graduated from Mater dei in 1992.

    Fished Lake Gibson alot as a kid.

    Never fished the Ohio

    Also, Bowfins or grindles are considered a prized catch here is SE PA so if any of you know a local spot, I'll be up for that. We used to have to drive all the way to Petersburg to catch them.

    Caught all my flatheads at a pay lake near the Stucco House in St. Phillips (Mt. Vernon). Would like to get my first Wild Hoosier FLATTY.

    Never fished Hovey Lake (would really like to)

    Thanks for the quick response. I'll keep you posted.
