HIDDEN HOTSPOT OF INDIANA

Rockville Lake Park is known by many as their favorite fishing destination. Often referenced as "my favorite place for bluegills", Rockville Lake will also give you a chance to match your skills against bass, catfish, crappie, and redear. This 102 acre watershed will give you a chance to peacefully drift, casting to that enticing cover that you just know is holding the next rod-bending fight. Keep your eyes peeled for the nesting pair of bald eagles on the lakeshore. These masters of the sky frequently give you a chance to witness fishing perfection!

Two of our giant bass! The left fish was over 6lbs and the other over 5lbs! They won the bass tournament with a five fish catch of over 18lbs!

Another giant fish. Just a couple ounces shy of 6lbs! Caught during one of our bass tournaments! Crankbaits, spinners, plastic worms, and topwater all work well here to provoke the largemouth!
