    Lake Details


    What you need to know about fishing Lake James


    Lake James is located in the northeast corner of Indiana, covering just over 1,000 acres. This lake can be a great destination for families to go boating, camping, and of course fishing. Anglers can expect to catch Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Perch, Northern Pike, and Walleye. Lake James contains a variety of humps, drop offs, weedlines, and shallow laydowns. Offshore humps are a great area to target all species once fish are moved into deeper water during the summer months. Fishing around docks and shallow laydowns can be very productive in the spring and early summer.
