I went Sunday - west central Indiana . Spent am hour or so speed walked to a couple spots. Found 2 pounds roughly all nice grays, couple blacks, 1 nice yellow and about 10 peckerheads. My bro in law same day east central Indiana found a shit load of peckerheads and what I call a woods mushroom ( brown sponge ) not gray not black or yellow but brownish. Just talked to a guy twenty minutes ago has found 32 pounds in past 2 days mostly all blacks. Been cold and very rainy this past week . I've got tomorrow off supposed to rain all day but I'm gonna be out there. That devils teacup, you aren't eating those are you......? Phone Post

 No, but you can eat them. They are terrible though and kinda no point. 

Damn 32 lbs. I would be happy with ten. Five last year but only went once.

I picked up a couple of pounds of greys last week in Nebraska and then got totally skunked in KC and Lake of the Ozarks.  Go figure.  As soon as my legs recover a little from fishing so much I'm going to hit the KC area again.  Probably Sunday.

Everybody is finding them like crazy this year ! I've been working so much / building new house after work haven't been out much . Looking like a rain out tomorrow tho. ;) Went last night for hour and a half found right at 1 pound of very fresh yellows. My buddy sold 6.5 pounds today to a local restaurant for $20 a pound. He said he had about same amount at home in the fridge. Phone Post

Nameless1 -  Good luck Phone Post

 Kinda trying to take luck out of it. I found the spots where we got 6lbs last year and somewhat certain they will be there again. These greys were hard as hell to see and almost seemed like a mirage.

 He claimed the season came early this year. He told us that he and his wife had drove down to Bloomington earlier in month and the areas were picked over hardcore by the locals. He said it was almost a total bust in Monroe county for them as a result.


He also told met that the yellows (and maybe one other) have a second coming in about a week or two whee they come out larger.
