    Kurt Are you fishing above or below Lafayette? Both are good. My best bait has been cut shad. Are you fishing at night?


    Kevin I was raised behind Hangingrock Church Camp, between 63 and 263. It's been a long time since I been to State Line City.

    RiverRunner- It seems that cut shad and live bream work the best around here. I usually fish along the Wabash in West Lafayette and have caught most of my fish on one of the two. I have been told that there is a hole near Davis Ferry Bridge that produces well-though I have not fished it, I have spoken to some that say they have. There are several good bends in the river running through Tippecanoe County that ought to have carved out some good holes. Don't forget that the junction of the Tippecanoe River and the 'Bash would be a good spot as well

    I don't know if you are familiar with the Tippecanoe County GIS website, but the county adopted it in lieu of a platt book a couple of years ago. It is a great resource for scouting out possible fishing spots and hunting grounds in the county. If you zoom in close enough it will come up with an arial photograph that you can superimpose elevation lines on as well as other things. Here is the link:

    Good luck and feel free to ask more questions. I'm sure one of us can be of some help.
