    Another good lake is Glenflint lake also caled vanbiberlake. it is just north of Greencastle off SR 231 or SR36. big cats toward the dam . ig gills and crappies in the coves. very nice lake. Use boat not a lot of bank fishing.

    The lake has a lot of structure in the coves. YOU have to go slow when off the main lake, tree stumps under surface but good fishing. I once watched a flathead eat a entire baloney swandwich with one gulp. estimate it at 3ft long. about 3 ftfrom the side of my boat , It submerdged like a submarine in a movie. really neat to see that happen.
