    leonard, i've caught my limit on redear alot in that southern indiana lake. same as crappie and big cats. i like to share with my boc brothers, i posted a few times about a small lake in southern indiana thats like gold. it's not on the map, but its 1400 acres of water i've been fishing it since i was 2ys old. i guess if you fish a place a long time they will come to you.

    Scott, that sounds like nice honey hole. 1400 acres is a good size lake not be on a map. I have a place at coal city that has some big gills, bass and large channels but the redears don't seem to do well in it. We put in crappies years ago and didn't start catching them until about 5 years later they had grown to 3 1/2 lbs. Just started to hit baits one year. But the redears never did take to bait. I don't know how long they live or if they spawned in the pits or not.

    I love catching big panfish. I don't care whether it's redear or bluegill. They both taste good and it's fun catching them on an ultralite with 2lb test. I'd love to get over there to that lake and catch a mess.

    Love catching redears, love eating them too! It's also the best way to introduce children to fishing. When the redears are biting, there is no boredom!

    Gut-em, scale-em, lop their heads off, cook-em, tasty little devils. I particularly love them out of cold water..through the ice if I can get them. Started all my kids on them and bullheads. Great fun even if you have to take-em off the hook for a couple hours.
