    I think ichabod is right. Central section of the state is the best. I have fished most of it but the four he mentioned are in the top percentile most of the time. The 'ville is in the cycle now at the top of its potential . Clinton should not be over looked either.

    For me, Id go with shelbyville for the numbers of crappie and mill creek for size. Mill creek also has a really good black crappie population. The only problem with mill creek , its $30.00 per day to launch a boat or $150.00 for a yearly pass. Keeps a lot of pressure off the lake though.
