Hello From Central Indiana

Recommended Posts

Hello to all from Central Indiana! I just joined the forum, and figured I'd post here. I like to fish mainly for largemouth, but I do mix a lot of smallmouth techniques into m bag of tricks. I like to power fish when the conditions are right, but I find my strenght is finesse. I'm usually the kinda guy who downsizes his presentations, fishes w/ natural colors, and fishes baits w/out rattles. This all changes in dirty water of course! My biggest weakness is dragging the bottom w/ a Carolina Rig or a Football Jig.. I've never been good at it! I usually fish small reservoirs in the area, but I do find time to get out onto big water, Eagle Creek and Racoon (Cecil M Harden) Lake being my favorites. I also do quite a bit of surf fishing when visiting family in Florida. Hope to contribute and learn from others!

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Jake

Welcome.

 

I have traveled in the central Indiana area and it is drop dead beautiful.

 

Used to go with a friend from Aurora to the Indy 500 and the drive was easy and pleasant on the eyes.

 

Glad you decided to join us.

Welcome Jake!

Always nice to meet another Central Indiana angler. Sounds like we share the same home waters! I'm actually about 10 minutes from Eagle Creek myself, and grew up fishing Raccoon Lake. Still have family living on it. All the same, I spend most of my time fishing smaller waters around here.

If you are looking for good ponds, check into Washington Park between Avon and Danville. There are two ponds and the bigger one (down the hill and behind the outdoor amphitheater) is surrounded by woods and gets almost no pressure. It has some nice bass (catch and release only), but it is also routinely stocked with eating-sized channel catfish.
