    The lil blue on my avitar came from the Wabash south of Terre Haute near Merom. Seems to be a pretty healthy population.

    I have caught some nice blues and flats all the way up to Lodi on the Wabash. Caught a 54lber around Clinton and a 52 around Merom.

    For a first timer, the area around Terre Haute (upstream) is excellent!! Lots of blues and flats (and big monster asian carp) in that stretch. Fish outside bends and deep holes. And yeah...the river is off the hook right now.

    If you go north from the boat ramp (Fairbanks Park?) the area around the tressels is anywhere between 25-40 foot deep. Up around the bend to the left there is some 25-35 foot water on the outside of the bend. there is plenty of deep water and you can pretty much run your boat full bore. BigA - The area down by you IS really shallow. Last year I couldnt find anything over 9 foot deep just north of where the Ohio and Wabash merge. Hope this helps y'all...catch a biggun!!
