    Last Saturday I went with a good buddy to the White River dam near Martinsville in pursuit of my first flathead of the year. I caught a 16# striper on a gill head. I got a pic of it, but I gotta wait 'til my wife gets back to post it. I know NOTHING about this digital camera thing. BTW, 10 minutes after I caught that a guy 20 yards from me landed a 28# flathead. I woulda gladly traded him LOL.

    theres a ramp in terre haute at fairbanks park on 1st street. the power plant is upstream a mile or two. i think he caught those when it was cold though cause the picture he showed me the trees in the backround didn't have any leaves on them and he was dressed warm.
    i wouldn't know what to use for bait.

    I've caught a lot of stripers out of the Wabash. I caught a small wiper tonight while fishing.
