    Fished the White River downtown last night and ended up catching two nice flatheads. Had a third one on as well but spit the hook on me. First fish was 32 lbs. and was caught on a live goldfish. Second fish was 24 lbs. and was caught on live bluegill. Both fish were released.

    I was fishing about 100 yds. downstream from the 16th st. dam. Tried to find a little more current. Not to much down by the railroad bridge now.

    Its downtown Indianapolis on the westside, the street name is White River Pkwy. Probably about a 2 hr drive from Cincinnati, maybe a little less.
