    Welcome to the BOC Levi, (Looks like your from my neck of the woods.) Spoonfish,Catfishscotty and some of the others are pretty good about keeping us updated on current fishing reports from Warsaw. Hopefully we will hear something from them this week. I see you are giving away a spinning reel and some line in the Star giveaway. I didn't sign up because I'm sure there is someone out there that needs it worse then me, Just thought I would commend you for you Generosity.
    Welcome Aboard,
    Rob

    Welcome to the BOC Levi. I havent been up to the dam in a few days, pretty bad I guess seems I live within 4 miles or so of it .... May try later this week as the weather looks better. They have been running some water though I believe and that allways helps the fishing. Scotty posted a couple days ago a report from his dad that also lives here.

    Hope that helps, good luck to you. Might see you there....

    went today got on the water around 10 am and still had the current flowing strong they ran water from 5 am to noon or so never caught a fish until the flow of water was calming down and did the best after they shut the water off in the afternoon .

    steve came down and dad got in steves boat in the nice heatted cabin and they left me all bymyself in my boat to freeze the afternoon away:smile2::smile2:

    dad said steves boat was nice and toasty . they caught a 15 lber a 25 lber and around 5 smaller ones from 2 - 4:30 pm

    i caught around 10 fish from 2 lbs to 12lbs or so we fished within a mile or so from each other this afternoon .

    water temp was around 35.5 degrees

    taking my nephew tomorrow ill will let ya know how we do .

    I'll be heading down there. My dad moved to Warsaw last summer from here. I'll be looking for someone to show me where to go to do some bank fishing when I'm there.

    Thanks Scotty and Steve had a great time. Good times with good friends. It was a nice stress reliever. Steve's got pics of the big fish. Not sure of the weight because Steve didn't have a scale on his boat. It sure was nice in Steve's procat fishing in a t-shirt while Scotty and his dad were all wrapped up in coats. The next day though we were in t-shirts in Scottys boat too. It sure was a nice day to be out on the water. I am looking forward to doing it again. I cant wait.

    Steve sorry about the grippers. I owe ya a pair. LOL
