It's spring time here on Kentucky Lake! Each day I've seen an increase in fish activity in the shallows. They're coming!
Notes on Action: There has been good action and a fairly easy bite lately with fish ranging in size from 12" to 8 Lbs.
What to Use: Crank baits, rattle traps, jerk baits, and shaky jigs are all productive.
Where to Fish: Shallow bars from the main lake to the back of bays are a good bet on warmer days and deeper banks are best on cooler days.
Notes on Action: We've made good catches of 12" to 14" (1.6 Lbs) fish the last few times out. I look for the numbers to increase with warmer temps.
What to Use: 2.5" tubes and curly tails in white, green, or chartreuse fished on 1/16 oz jigs are a sure bet to produce.
Where to fish: Casting along rocky banks, shallow bars, and points with some wood on them will get you a good mess.
It's time to go fishing!
