With this fast falling water, I’ve gone from catching fish in people’s yards to catching them off shore on ledges and gravel points in the last six days. We have some awfully fast moving fish here in KY Lake. One thing has stayed the same though...”we caught plenty of fish”... Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Bluegill, Red Ears, Catfish, and Crappie. To view pictures of recent catches, go to www.captainkirksguideservice.com/pictures.php
Notes on the Action: Smallmouths are mostly post spawn and Largemouths are at the tail-end of their spawn. The action has been good with plenty of quality fish being caught.
What to Use: Big crankbaits, big spinner baits, large hair jigs, 4” to 10” soft plastics and jigs are all producing. June bug.
Where to Fish: Gravel points, shallow ledges, and deeper banks are producing.
Notes on the Action: The fish are post spawn, but still in the bays and biting!
What to Use: Chartreuse curly tails on a 3/32 oz. jig have been working for us.
Where to Fish: 4’ to 15’ deep on secondary points in bays is where we’ve caught them.
Notes on the Action: The Bluegill are right in the middle of their spawn. Big numbers of good sized gills are common.
What to Use: 1/16 oz spider jig tipped with a wax worm is hard to beat.
Where to Fish: Gravel points and ditches on shallow gravel flats are hot!
Notes on the Action: Good action with fish 2lb to 8lb. The cats are spawning.
What to Use: Night crawlers, shrimp, leeches, and minnows are productive.
Where to Fish: 4’ to 15’ off rocky banks.
Notes on the Action: Seeing some action.
What to Use: Small inline spinners or spoons.
Where to Fish: Gravel points 10’ to 20’ deep.
