Catch a Memory

Finding a different way to make the most of a situation is making a difference for fishing on Indiana’s larger bodies of public water. These waters are producing big fish to create big moments and memories for anglers.

These top predator fish are the product of special fishing management programs that lure in anglers to catch these line-busters. These fish offer a test of will, knowledge and persistence. Give these waters a chance to change your life. The fish are waiting for you.
