Default Indian Lake

I live closer to Alum Creek then the rest, but Indian Lake has more to do and see. I go to Indian Lake all the time, my wife is from there originally and she still has family up there. It's shallow, but it has bars and restaraunts on the water, so I like it most out of what we have to choose from.

I tried Buckeye Lake a few weeks ago, too dirty, and a 1 or 2 mile no wake zone right in the center of the lake turned me off. It's basically one long skinny lake with a nowake zone in the center.

I have tomorrow off, so I may hit Indian or something to try out some new props.

Luv-in-it, I dry stack in Cleveland. I kind of like it because It is some what central and I can head out in any direction.
Thrillseeker covered the Casino. It was loaded up with offshores 2 weeks ago when we were there. They charge to dock by the hour but have special rates for longer and overnight. On the south side of Kellys Island look for the turquoise roof top of a building (pretty easy to spot). The Casino is right next to it with the entrance to the right. It can get pretty tight docking if its loaded up and boats are along the wall.
Got to go because you'll be in heaven.

BuzzinBye, I witnessed the very same thing that you talked about. A storm was comming in and the waterlevel dropped rapidly out of the Ashtabula river. I wish that I would have measured the water line mark on the wall at the marina but began to help losen up lines on peoples boats so it wouldn't damage them or the docks. It was wild seeing the boats sitting on the bottom.

Thats to bad about the people who drowned.

Go to Deep Water Marina for the 92. I have heard that PIB has it but dig deep into the pockets. Deep Water is located close to the Sandusky public ramps.
