      Thanks Tim. I bought a house in Xenia Ohio 20 miles from Dayton. Have fished Paint Creek and rocky fork as well as ceasars Creek here in southern Ohio but not great ...more days. That's why I thought Indian could produce more with pads, cover and boat docks

      Also was thinking about it, don't know where you are coming from but a few good spots for Largemouth. Clearfork res. near Mansfield, only 10mph speed limit but ...more good lake with quality bass. East Harbor Lake Erie, a safe place to fish the great lake, have had a few 100 Bass days several 7lbers. Just thought I would mention as they are great fisheries.m

      Bobby, It has been a few years since I have been to Indian, but the area around Moyndwood ramp used to have lots of.pads or the bridge that is close by. Otherwise ...more the area in the North East corner is a large area that always had timber and loaded with Lily pads, birds, frogs, bugs oh and Bass. Good Luck ! let me know how you do.

      in winter time they drain paint creek down so far to keep from flooding its not like that now

      I was there about a month ago really muddy and a lot of logs, water was real high nothing biting.

      That's really bizarre. All of the other lakes that are drawn down in the winter have been at full pool for a couple months.
