  1. Hey everyone, I just moved to the Wabash area late last fall. Fishing has always been a hobby, but back home near Chicago there weren't many nice spots, mostly ditches, and a real nasty slough area. I spent most of my childhood summers at my grandfather's cabin near the BWCA in Minnesota trawling for pike and wallaye. But I pretty much stopped fishing after I got divorced in mid '03.

    I had full custody of my 2 kids until my lawyer did a good number on me and lost it for me. I moved here to recover from the shock, and as spring began to take hold, I decided to begin exploring the Mississinewa, which is only about 7 miles from my home here. WOW! :fish: What a nice area! I have never lived somewhere with a nice lake nearby. Back home it's completely flat, no trees, and no real streams, rivers, or lakes. To live so close to something so beautiful is really helping my spirits. I have begun to re-learn how to fish passionately. I prefer angling with lures, even though my brother tells me that live bait is the way to go in this area. I do agree with him, but it's just my preference. I'll admit openly, that even though I have fished all my life, I'm still new to many terms, I couldn't begin to explain what kind of lures I am using, My brother calls them jigs, but I don't know.

    Also, has anyone heard the rumors of cougars in the Miami county area near the Mississinewa? :yikes: :help: :hide:

    Ah yes my old stomping grounds... I spent a lot of time there in my youth, around the Summerset area, and over into Miami county by the spillway... Lots of good fishing, hunting and Mushroom hunting to be had!
