Default Anyone been out

Just talked to snuffy last night. He took a newby to clinton lake last saturday. Water temps ranged a cool 95 to 99 degrees by his guage. They seen more dead fish floating with no holes in them than live fish, only boated 5. Simeraly i went out to the wabash on this wednesday with my son-in-law. I got one fleeting shot at a grassie and shot one gar. Only fish we saw. River was way low as you might expect. Pretty much says they have went deep. Only jumped a few silvers as well. Hardly any in the usual places. Looks like it is time to hook up the lights if you are going out.

I took a stroll along some of the small streams and drainage areas that I can get to by foot and they were so low that they could no longer hold fish. Only saw one or two grassies.

Has anyone been to Shelbyville at night lately? I thought about heading down there for an evening run.

been getting slower and slower everywhere we go also waters down and temps are up not a good combo I guess. Time to get the new Insanity out and tune it up and fling some arrows in the back yard for awhile till the fishing picks up

Yeahhh!! How adventurous!! Even I love hooking up near d pond and baiting fish. But dis time d fishes looks dull and dead as if they have not been given to eat. How poor it is! Even d pond was stinking. This time I had a bad experience.

I took a walk down to the Vermilion river this morning, to see if the grass carp I been seeing was hanging out. Yep, slipped up on him and nailed him.
Just got a call from Snuffy he ventured over to Clinton lake today. water has cooled down to 89. he did not see any floating dead fish either. managed to boat 8 commons. said lots of boats and jet ski's.
