This is what I think of early March fishing on Kentucky Lake...Extra large Crappie and plenty of them and a good bass bite with a few extra large fish. This is what we experienced yesterday! After a long hard winter things really broke loose! We caught 20 plus Crappie with ten of them weighing near or over 2 lbs a peice and we saw numerous basseating crank baits fished on rocky points.
To view pictures of recent catches go to my PICTURES webpage.
Notes on Action: Finding good action in spurts with larger than average White Crappie and an abundance of 9 3/4" Black Crappie.
What to Use: We've been casting and vertical fishing 2" tubes and Bobby Garland shad bodies (chartreuse glow) on 1/16 oz jig heads.
Where to Fish: Wood cover from 4' to 25' deep have all been producing good fish.
Notes on Action: A few fish here and a few there with an occassional really big fish seems to be the norm.
What to Use: Big, small and medium cranks are producing. Slow rolling a big spinner bait, jigs, and Alabama rigs are all catching fish.
Where to Fish: Mainlake points and the first few secondary points in bays seem to be best. Spinner baits fished over shallow brush and an Alabama rig thrown anywhere may catch 'em. Chunk rock banks, shallow ridges and slow presentations.
I've got a few good dates open for May Bluegill fishing.
I've got plenty of openings for June Bass fishing (the best). Call 877-354-6017 to book - my spring is pretty booked up.
See ya on the water.
Captain Kirk, out!
