    Kris,I called T&T bait shop down by the P.S.I. Lake Gibson .
    And talked to Jim the owner. He said the Lake was OPEN, he thinks.
    I will check tomorrow, and if it is not open I will let you know.

    Kris, I went out to the P.S.I. Lake and talked to the guard at the gate.
    He said that they were open AT 7 to 5 Monday to Friday and 5 to 5
    Saturday & Sunday. He said there was a man ,last week,that came out, and caught 100 ,and kept 75, They were no bigger than 3/4 to 1 lb. But,a lot of them. And yes ,I would like to go next week . I will not be home till Thursday & Friday I have to work Saturday
    of next week . We can take the Pontoon boat .:)

    I love fishing that place when I was a kid. Grew up in Evansville. If I can remember, you go highway 41 and turn at the Princeton exit and go towards Mt. Carmel.. Am I right????? I just remember my dad driving this direction. I used to catch a billion channel cats there.

    Catseeman, they have no H.P. restrictions on the Lake that I know of.
    Yes ,you can bank fish at the boat parking lot. I talked to a man to day
    and he caught 65 yesterday, and he had 12 when I was there today.
    All was1/2 lb to 1 lb in size. He was bank fishing by the way. By the
    boat ramp.
