The leaves are pretty much gone off the trees, the eagles are abundant on the lake, 40 MPH boat rides in 25 degree air are pretty chilly, 32 degrees with sun and no wind feels real good, the slab Crappies are biting good, Sauger and Bass are cooperative, and the days are too short.
Yes, it’s winter on Kentucky Lake! Gotta LOVE IT!
Jerk baits, jigs, and spoons are catching fish. Fish bluff banks, secondary points in the front half of bays, main lake points, and ledges. I’ve caught a few Smallmouths and quite a few Largemouths lately anywhere from 8’ to 25’ deep.
Finding good action and large fish 8’ to 18’ deep on chunk rock deep banks and ledges. Casting 3/32 oz hair jigs in chartreuse, blue, and green has been doing the trick.
Large schools of large Bluegill are on main river ledges 10’ to 20’ deep. Wax worms, night crawlers, or small jigs will get ´em.
Fish a 1/4 oz jig with a minnow on main lake submerged creek and river channel points 30’ to 40’ deep for good action.
Yellow Bass, White Bass and Stripers can be caught 16’ to 23’ deep on ledges and deep points on or near the main lake. Try spoons, silver buddies, Crappie jigs, or minnows for good action.
Cut bait, night crawler, or minnows fished 30’ to 50’ deep on the river channel bank will catch fish.
Happy Holidays to ya!
Capt. Kirk, out!
