Carlos State Park is a good bet. Nice swimming beach and pretty decent fishing on Carlos.

Probably saw you there, it's well kept and Hillard's cattle are not there, neither is he. Cattle over the hill, and park is well maintained. Awesome peice of property that he turned over for all to enjoy. Brent

No golf for me. Too many hobbies as it is. Summers are very busy, and all I find time for is getting on the water and mowing 3 acres around 100+ trees! Planning on quitting the majority of the mowing, as it seems to be a waste of time. The golf course keeps busy, I drive by a lot on weekends. Great camping on little chip and devils, come on up!!

Henrichs, I don't know where Ryan is. Darrin (Tubby) is in Evansville. Darrin was involved in an accident and is not walking. He's still himself, still a happy guy!!

Let me know when you'll be up, I might know of some hotspots!

      Wasn't out but just drove by Locke lake by hasty on 94. There were about 8 people out on the lake. All walked out. Not even ATV's. Best I can give ya.

      Hoping things button up with the colder night time temps later in the week...all the crappies I have been getting lately have been shallow....and I'm talking even on edges of pencil reeds in that 8ft depth.  IMO they are acting like late March panfish, very aggressive and seem to have started the migration towards their spawning grounds.  I'll be out catching crappies even if I have to walk out...who knows...maybe mother nature will throw us a another curveball and it will get real cold again in a couple weeks. Good Luck!
