Indian Lake Fishing Report—04-29-19

Indian Lake received less rain than GLSM and Lake Loramie. Fish have been biting. Good catches of both saugeye and crappies have been reported. Some fishermen are also finding bluegills. Crappie and bluegill fishermen have been using jigs and plastic. Wax worms and spikes are commonly added to the combination. Popular areas are Long Island, Lucy’s Pond, Blackhawk, and the game reserve. According to Lakeside Pro Bass, most of the crappie fishing is being done on the north side. Blackhawk has also produced fish. Fishermen are concentrating on cover next to deep water. Fishing on the edge of the pad beds produces fish. Fishing should continue to improve as the weather stabilizes. The morning and evening bites are the best.

Saugeye fishermen were taking keepers at Moundwood. Bank fishing is also picking up on the south and west banks. Wind direction is very important and the fishing improves with an on-shore breeze. Bank fishermen commonly use a floating jig head tipped with a bass minnow. In addition, bank fishermen will also throw various swim baits and other artificials. Vibe-Es, Twister Tails, and Big Joshy baits are popular. Boat fishermen were taking fish trolling crank baits such as the Flicker Shad. Pink was a popular color choice. There is currently fishing activity in the tail-waters below the spillway. Both saugeye and crappies are being taken.
