While riding up the lake early this morning en route to our fishing destination, I couldn't
help but notice there was an abundance of Seagulls flying over the shallow flats on
the main lake. They were scattered over several miles with no concentration of birds
anywhere so I kept going to a place I'd caught 'em good a few days ago. When I arrived at my destination, there were no Seagulls in site (nor other fishermen) and only a few nice sized arches (fish) on my fish locator. I told my clients it didn't look so good but let's try it anyway. We fished about 45 minutes and caught several nice sized bass, but nothing spectacular and I was thinking we might ought to move when... out of the water around the boat came lots of 4" shad running for their lives! Now don't get me wrong, I love catching big Crappie, Red Ear, Bluegill, and Catfish in this lake, but nothing gets my heart pounding like being in the middle of a bass feeding frenzy! We caught lots of Largemouth Bass, Yellow Bass, and big White Bass. I guess I just like being where the action is. Today it was in my boat on Kentucky Lake!
If you'd like to view pictures of recent catches, go to the pictures page of my website.
If you'd like to get in on this great summer fishing, call 877-354-6017 and I'll get you on 'em.
See ya on the water.
Captain Kirk, out!
