Indian Lake

on March 31st

Covering 5,104 acres of former swampland, Indian Lake is a big lake that offers nice fishing for bass 12-18 inches, excellent channel catfish in the 10-20 inch range, decent numbers of 10-14 inch white bass, thick panfish that average 7 inches, and stocked saugeye. You won't find much in the way of depth or water clarity though. Some of the best fishing spots in this big lake include around Long Island, Dunn's Pond, the back of the game preserve, around Blackhawk Island, the two holes that dip below 10' (The finger bay north of Dunn's Pond and south of Shawnee Island), and the southwest corner of the lake. If you are a troller, your best bet is to focus on the open ski zone and flats in the middle of the lake. The usual baits and lures will work well, the best lures are colored white, chartreuse, pink, orange, and dark colors.
