    fished from the bank yesterday dropped my bait in front of a logjam that was making an eddy. first time i tried circles. not sure what was goin on lol..... my rod bent pretty sharp at one point, but thats about it. i think the water is still too cold and the river was goin down wich never seems to help any. it was nice to get the dust off everything though. i'll keep everyone posted, but i doubt i'll get out again anytime soon. supposed to snow:mad:

    you could probably find some suckers or sturgeon, just go fish the mouth of a creek. i caught a couple suckers a few weeks ago.

    just wanted to know where some of the better spots to launch a boat on the wabash are. i have never fished it before, but plan on going there quiet a bit this summer.

    Baitfish, I went right around the lockport bridge in between there and the next bridge west from there. They quit hitting right when the sun went down.

    My buddy from Lafayette went down to the Bash today and caught 7 Blues from 8 to 10 puonds. His father in law caught a fathead carp and they cut a big chunk out and used it for bait. He almost lost his pole on the first cast. It was a deep hole next to a downed tree. He was only there for 1.5 hours. the wind was howling, go figure. He got of work early and was just farting around.

    Fished the Wabash today, launched south of Pittsburg. Caught nine channels all on shad guts all between 15 and 21 inches. They are really starting to turn on. Just a note the Tippecanoe River is full of dead shad right now and the live ones are in huge schools. I believe that shad guts, or cut, or whole shad is the way to go right now. The fish that I have kept are stuffed full of them!!

    So, with all this flooding should we be getting out fishing? Where do the fish go with high currents/flooding like this? I would gues any kind of slack water???
