    Has anyone been fishing regular old lakes with any luck yet? The last month we've been hitting power plant lakes but I want to fish tomorrow night but don't want to drive to Sanchris or Coffeen. Thinking of hitting Otter Lake but I'm not sure how the temps will affect the bite.:eek:oooh: If anyone has had any luck on these types of lakes yet this year let me know please. Thanks guys!

    Yep Shane. Youre right. I found out about a new spot on the lake right by my house so I think I'm gonna hit it for a while tomorrow after work and maybe into the night. Hoping I do well. Come to think of it what could be better than fishing and listening to the Redbirds play some ball on the radio!!!

    Joe, it's been my experience thus far that it changes from day to day and sometimes from hour to hour. I have had some luck tho.

    I heard they were catching a few at Jacksonville, Joe. Don't know how true it is.
