    good idea.. i had fun fishing with you up here, im definately willing to travel a bit.. if you figure out a date, and send some directions, you can more than likely count me in.. one thing though.. holly is NOT hanging out with susan.. susan will teach her BAD BAD things, and my wallet cant afford that:smile2::smile2: just kidding she seems like a good person as well!!!

    A 22" flathead for my first wasn't bad & neither was a 6" Tiger Muskellunge. I wouldn't want to be caught by the CO with that one!:cool2:

    No! Some people say that you can only eat one portion a month from the river. :angry: You can however look at the photos on my profile.:wink:

    One of the last few times that I went to the Falls, I'd tried to give a carp
    to someone who normally likes to eat them, but no takers. Back in you go.

    Ive caught some big hybrids at the falls one day was Unreal. Park the boat on the bank between the lower gates and the hydros. I would cast a 4 inch swim shad it was white or green. I was pulling it aross the gates right up in the fast water. Boy they would hammer that swim bait. Biggest i saw caught that day was a 17lber. That day the had the lower gates open 3 ft the level was 11ft. I bet u they are running hard now best time to try 55 degree water. Wish i had that hole in my back yard :roll_eyes:

    Ben, May I ask what park of Indiana are you? I'm going to be out of work for a while & I could use a fishing buddy.

    I've gone back to The Falls twice this week with no luck at fishing, but Bluesey & I had fun with the rain anyway. I've just added another album to my profile & more photos.:wink:

    I was supprized to see 6-8 other people fishing in the cold & windy weather & some where even in the water itself. I'll give them cedit, they're braver than I am, even if the fish weren't biting.:embarassed:

    It was a cool day at The Falls today. A good afternoon to stroll around for almost 2 hours walking in some mud, on rocks & watching some people fish. Has anyone else had a pleasant afternoon?:cool2:
