My wife and I have fished both Stroud and Chandler City Lake a few times.
Do you most times fish from a boat or do you have a float tube (or the like)?
If you have a canoe, "bass buster" type boat or a float tube, the Mounds City Lake is EXCELLENT for big Bluegills and Red-ear Sunfish. The Bass aren't too shabby either. Nice thing about it is, no gas motors allowed. So no worries about big boats zooming around. Very few people fish it from other than the bank.
Fishing during the day in the Dog Days of Summer required Trolling to get a few ,including a 26" 6#11 oz. Channel Cat . Nothing up on the banks. This Cat was strong !The skin felt like a fully inflated Truck Tire .All Muscle ! Had my 6' Quantum…
