The pending results of an experimental bass size limit on Big Long Lake may lead to more Indiana lakes with a slot limit structure.
That’s the view of northern Indiana biologists who are conducting a study of what could be done on lakes that have an overabundance of undersize (less than 14 inches) bass.
Dan and Sara Posey (Niles) had five keeper largemouth bass totaling 12.12 pounds to win the Casting Couples tournament on Diamond Lake.
The tournament drew 24 teams with seven limits weighed in.
Posey used drop-shots and Hula Grubs to earn $310. They also won second Big Bass honors with 3.78 pounder to take home a Native Pride Tackle pack.
Zoom Bait Company announces the release of the new Z-Swim 3.8, a ribbed swimbait that swims naturally, emulates a wide variety of baitfish and can be used from the surface down into the deepest lairs of wary bass.

The Michigan DNR has blocked access to its Eagle Lake access parking property, prohibiting boaters who use the older boat ramp north of the area from parking there.
According to Gary Jones, the move was made when Cass County Ontwa Township officials complained of overcrowding of people and traffic along Eagle Lake road near the parking area.
The DNR bought the property more than three years ago and has allowed public parking there ever since. The grassy area is part of a new proposed DNR boating access site that has been tied up in litigation for nearly four years.
Boaters were using the property to park their trailers after launching at the existing launch along the roadside north of the parking area. That changed late last week when the DNR placed large boulders along the roadside to prevent people from parking there.
