  1. Indiana Stripers and Wipers
    Hey guys, I just joined the site and would like to say I realy get a lot of info. from everyone. My brother and I are making a trip to Monroe and we want to catch some shad for wiper fishing. But where to catch them is beyond me. Any info. would be appreciated.

    They've been hard to find of late. This is my fifth trip to Monroe and not a single wiper. Not even any signs of them. Of course, I had my theories about the lake being fished out and other such doomsday perdictions, but I held out hope that things would change. So with that in mind, Mr...

    What a Father's Day! Five casts. Five fish. All over five pounds. It was incredible. Then there was that 18 lb. blue cat that hit my spoon. I really thought I had caught the big one. We put in at Paynetown as most folks were leaving; late afternoon. It was too hot to fish so we swam...

    Got to the lake late in the day and put in at Paynetown, armed with casting rods and a bucket of shiners. On the boat were Mr. P, myself, and a young angler we'll refer to as Buck. We tried Moores Creek but caught nothing there. Went to Hardin Ridge; nothing. Then back to the Moores Creek...

    With the exception of the rain on Monday it was a fine, clear weekend. We hit the water Friday afternoon, late, and caught fish immediately trolling chartreuse jigs tipped with shiners. Mr. P took a couple of six pounders and lost three at the boat. He thinks it is a problem with the trebble...

    It was an uneventful trip. The lake level is seriously down. The water temps ran from 43-44 degrees. I remained on the fast end of the lake, which probably was not the right thing to do since the slow side is alot shallower and the water will tend to warm quicker. Anyway, no fish but the...

    Got there about 1:00 p.m. and launched at Fairfax. Talked to a guy coming in as we headed out. Said he'd been there since dawn. Got about fifteen lmb and three "nice" wipers. Said they were about 5-7 pounders and he took them near shore in the Sugar Creek Inlet. We tried there, but got...

    We (Mr. Sidekick and I) got to Hardin Ridge at 2:00 p.m., set up camp, then headed for the ramp by the same name. We were one of three campers there, which is kind of unusual since the is so beautiful this time of the year and the camping on the federal campground if free. We launched and...

    Well, at least we didn't have any trick or treaters. We put in at Paynetown and hit all points to the south. I lost a three fish before we arrived at Sugar Creek. It was a calm and sunny day, one of those when you see no surface activity and by 4 p.m. you're starting to think you're going...

    Cold on the lake. High winds. Whitecaps. Still air temp was in the mid-fifties; no way of knowing what it was with the chill factored in. Fishing was real slow. A few people out, but not much action. Water temp was 61 degrees. Threw and trolled the lower end. Used silver spoons and...

    Partner and I put in at about 3:00 p.m. from the Fairfax Ramp and fished the lower end to the dam. Most of the fish we found were in deep water (22+ feet) and close to dropoffs and points. The water temps ran about 71 degrees and the water was clear. Wind was light and there were not many...

    Hit the water about 2:30 and fished until dark. We had a really great day. Caught 8 wipers and one largemouth. Not sure what the largemouth was doing suspended out in the lake but he was out there. The fish were a little smaller this trip. Largest was 6 lbs. Most were 4 to 5 lbs. I think...

    Put in at Hardin Ridge Ramp at 4:15 p.m. and concentrated on the lower end of the lake for Hardin Ridge to the dam. Caught a 5.0 pounder trolling a chartreuse Slab Spoon across the opening of Hardin Ridge. It was a 1.0 oz spoon that was trolling at about 12 foot down and the fish took it in...

    We launched at Moore's Creek at 2 p.m. and hit the mouths of most of the inlets headed south. At Sugar Creek I caught an 8.2 pound wiper. He hit a chrome 1 oz. Slab Spoon slow retrieved at the bottom of about twenty-three feet of water. Nice fish, and since I was using 8# test line, it was a...

    Got on the water at about 2:00 p.m., launching from Moore's Creek Ramp. Fished the usual spots (every inlet on the southeast side of the lake) and eventually found ourselves fishing at the dam. We trolled TNT casting spoons (chartreuse of course) along the marker line. I got hit first with a...

    You don't get many days like this. The air was cool, the sky clouds, no humidity, light wind and not many boats on the water. Add to that one of the finest angling days I can remember and you have something to write home about. We (Mr. Piggy and I) put in at Paynetown about 1:00 p.m. and...

    The lake is nearly at summer pool. Only about a foot and a half to go. We put in at Fairfax, hitting the water at about 2:30 p.m. By 3:15 p.m. I had my limit. Fished one of the points and took the first fish, a 7.14 pounder, slowretrieving a spoon across about 23 feet of water. The second...

    Went down Sunday evening with my brother. We had nine hits and boated 7 of them. We kept 3 and threw back 4. Most were 3 to 4 lbs. They were biting really good but we were looking for larger fish so we moved out of these schools to try to find the larger fish. We did eventually get one just...
  20. Indiana Stripers and Wipers
    Put out from Fairfax at 3:00 p.m. I had the first one (8.4 lbs.) by 3:15 and the second (4.0 lb.) by 3:30 p.m. Skies were mostly clear and thw wind was, well, pronounced. Mr. Piggy was feeling bad because he wasn't catching. We were trolling chartreuse jigs. Oops! Sorry Mr. Piggy. There...
