Dec 5, 2009

Air Temperature: Low of 26°F, High of 40°F
Water Temperature: 52°F and falling
Water Elevation: 355 (354 winter pool)
Water Clarity: 5’ to 6’ visibility (green stain)

I haven’t fished for four days now, but the last day I fished (November 29), here was our catch: forty-three nice slab crappies, one hefty largemouth well over five pounds, two spunky smallmouth around three pounds, a couple other fat largemouth around four pounds apiece, about fifteen nice yellow bass, a few chunky bluegill, and a big ole’ catfish. Oh, yeah, and a partridge in a pear tree!! (Haha...forgive me.)

It’s been colder these past few days, but I’m certain the fish are biting. I just can’t make up my mind what to do; should I work around the yard, go hunting, go Christmas shopping, or go fishing?!?! Decisions, decisions...life is never boring here on Kentucky Lake!!!
