I’ve mostly Crappie fished these past few weeks but have mixed in a little bass fishing. We’ve made some good catches of nice big slab Crappies and caught a good number of scrappy Smallmouths and Largemouths. The weather has been great...maybe a little too good. The best fall fishing is yet to come! Those nasty, cold, rainy days are what turns the fish on in the fall. I’ll miss these comfortable temps. But look forward to faster action as I dig out my coveralls to stay warm.
Be sure to view pictures of recent catches on my ”Pictures” web page. It’s not too late to get in on the best fall fishing on Kentucky Lake. Call me at 877-354-6017.
Notes on Action: Action has been slower with sporadic fast action lately. With fewer tournaments in the future weeks and cooler temps, I look for improvement.
What to Use: Small crank baits, small soft plastic craws, spoons, blade baits, and small top waters have been best for me lately.
Where to Fish: Deeper banks in the back of large bays, main lake points, and shallow flats on the main lake have been producing.
Notes on the Action: Been catching fairly good numbers and real good sized Crappies. My numbers have been increasing as the water temps fall.
What to Use: Jigs and minnows.
Where to Fish: Stumps, stake beds, and brush piles in 8’ to 20’ of water have been most consistent. Catching some fish as shallow as 3’ deep in 6’ of water.
Notes on the Action: Good numbers can be caught.
What to Use: Night Crawlers.
Where to Fish: Gravel points with a little wood in 6’ to 10’ of water.
Notes on the Action: Good action can be found when there is current on the main lake and sporadically in the backs of bays.
What to Use: Inline spinners and spoons.
Notes on the Action: Good action.
What to Use: Shrimp, leeches, night crawlers, etc.
Where to Fish: 15’ for channel cats and 30’ to 50’ for Blues.
Notes on the Action: Book me in November and we’ll catch them!
