Go fish!

Bloomington and the surrounding area has more to offer in the outdoor realm than just hiking.  Prospective students should consider Monroe County’s ample opportunities for angling and boating.  Whether you’re an amateur or experienced bass master, a fishing adventure is always a great way to get your mind off of the daily grind.  Word has it that the crappies are biting and it’s time to get your line wet.  Hey, even if you can’t get a bite you’ll probably find some serenity being out on the water.  Rentals are generally cheap ($6/hour for canoe/boat/kayak on Griffy Lake) and if you aren’t paddle savvy try tossing a bobber in from the bank.  Just remember to think like the fish and look for suitable habitat.  Also, play it legal and buy your state permit (thereby adding a net benefit to society)!
