    I've got a fishing trip planned at Dale Hollow Nov 1 - Nov 10.

    I have fished Dale in late December, January, April, May, etc. I kind of know how to approach it during those times, but November...

    I'm heading to Rend Lake this weekend for the first time.

    I'm hoping the fall bite will be started.

    Does anyone know the locations of any fly fishing shops near Evansville? I'd go into American Legacy, but that place is crazy expensive.

    Re: Help With Patoka in Spring

    I love it when I'm trolling around the main lake and I spot a school of White Bass busting on shad. Stop the boat and throw every thing you have at them. Guaranteed hookups.
