    Hi Everyone,
    Why don't all of us Hoosiers (or anyone else) get together for a gathering some time in September? It would be great to meet you all, and it's always a good idea to swap knowledge. It seems that the hot spot is the White River, south of Martinsville. I have read good reports of large flats by Williams Dam. Some of us don't have boats, so Williams would be nice because there is plenty of bank fishing or you can put a boat in if you'd like. They have camping spots there, and I'm pretty sure that includes powered sites for campers. I would be happy to figure out these details if people are interested. I would prefer a Saturday afternoon starting time, fishing all night untill Sunday morning. There have been posts talking about an Indiana gathering on the old site, but no progress was made. What do you say guys (and gals), is there any interest, or any input on a better fishing spot! Have a great day and good luck on the water!

    I have no problem with the white river or maybe cataract. It would have to be in the first couple of weeks in September for me to be able to make it for sure. September is end of quarter at work and I usually have to work the last two weekends of the month. If for some reason I don't then I might be able to make it at the end of the month.

    I believe we are going to try and find a spot that everyone will be able to bank fish from. We also have a couple of the members that have boats as well. If we don't make it a bank fishing event then it shouldn't be a problem for us to take others out in the boats. I have a 3 seater and Typer and his buddy have boats as well. I think it would be more fun if we bank fish though so everyone is together.

    Hey Joe, what do you think of that spot of your's down by Martinsville for the gathering? How does Saturday the 24th of September sound? Does that date work for everyone? We could meet mid afternoon and fish the rest of the night.

    Glad to hear all of you can make it! All of your friends are more than welcome to come. We will be fishing the tail waters of the IPL Plant hot water discharge, about 5 miles north of Martinsville on SR67. Park on the east side of the road, just north of where SR67 and State Highway 39 West meet. We will be there at 2pm and stay throughout the night. You will see my black 4Runner, with the BOC logo on the back window, parked there. You will have to walk about 200 yards to get to the dam. Look for my blue East-Up Tent. This is a BYOB (that can mean "bait" or "beer" or both) event, so come prepared. I look forward to meeting everyone and catching some fish! Let me know if any of you have questions.

    I'm gonna try and make this one guys. It's end of quarter at work this month which means that I usually have to work on the weekends. I'll try and see if I can work days that day and if not I'll be off by 11 pm and will head down there then. Let me know if anything changes. I don't want to go down there that late at night and not have anybody show up.

    There is a huge beach like area there, with room for around 50 people. I would be very suprised if that many show up, but it would be a good time. Hope you can make it!

    Sam brought a bait shop to my attention that is in Martinsville, which is a few miles from where we will be fishing. If anyone needs bait, here are the directions:
    Judy's Bait Barn is located at 330 West Columbus Street in Martinsville. (765)349-7606

    If you go into downtown Martinsville at the courthouse square, take Main Street north. Columbus street will be about 2 or 3 streets, turn right or west and go back three or four blocks. Its about the only thing back there and is in a residential area.

    :) Haven't fished there in over 20 years. Used to walk around and cross on the railroad track to fish the other side. Sometime we waded across. Fished down there one time after a heavy rain and caught about 50 cats in about 2 hours! Them were the days...:)
