      I fished near the marina Friday night and 2/3 of the lake was open and covered in geese, when I went to the bait shop today it was almost all locked up but I’m sure ...more it’s still thin. What an odd ice year. I went by Max on Friday main lake all the way open be interesting to see what Max looks like tomorrow when I’m near there.

      well we were unable to secure a boat but we are fishing from the dock and kayaks. So far, one walleye, one white bass, and two catfish. Having a great time but feel ...more we could be slaying them if we had a boat.Tight lines!
    3. Ralph Witt 0
      Ric I have caught a few out front of the beach in 17 feet of water and work your way NE until you go around I think it’s called cranberry point.
    4. Ralph Witt 0
      okay rich good luck 17 feet of water seems like the sweet spot. ask for the walleye minnows.

      yes bass lake and tackle. open 6am to 6pm best bait shop in Indiana. all walleyes wife and I catch we’re caught drifting jig and minnows green and white in color ...more 1/4 ounce in 17 feet of water time of day does not matter and fish the east side of the lake where the water discharges in the lake to regulate water level. good luck have fun.
