Don't feel bad BigBlue.
I think the DNR in Indiana has done a wonderful job the last 10 years in Indiana giving us great public fisheries that are free (license required for those over 17).
Walleye fishing is imporving throughout the state. Smallmouth are starting to show up in better numbers in many reservoirs, the wiper fishing is fantastic, striper fishing is great at times, catfishing is awesome, panfishing can be excellent with a little more effort.
I guess paylakes have their place but I'll stick with the DNR lakes.
