Kentucky Bassin

Well I finally got to go back down to Kentucky lake. Have been fishing Lake of Egypt with little success. With it going to be around 60degrees today me and my team partner Doug thought we would go down to Kentucky Lake. Our first stop resulted in 3 good keepers all on the jerkbait. Then we moved two main lake points up and caught another keeper on jerkbait. The next point resulted with another keeper on the jerkbait. then about noon the wind changed and completely died which hurt the jerbait bite for us. We then moved back up the lake and I got out the shakey head and caught another good keeper. We ended up with 6 keepers in the boat I lost another good one on jerkbait earlier that would have helped, but our biggest 5 weighed 15.12oz. I was throwing a 6'6 and 7' medium action rods with 8lb and 12lb Triple Fish Flourocarbon line with a 6:2:1 reel. Here are a few pictures of the fish we caught.

Power back on.....

Well went to Lake of Egypt on thurs 1/2/09 and the power plant at lake of egypt has been turned back on which means the shad are moving around well again. Within 15 minutes of fishing I landed a nice 3 1/2 lb largemouth. Needless to say the shad was stacked everywhere up front on points and in some bays. I moved around a little with little success then finally hit the right spot and the bass were schooling on a large school of shad I managed to catch fish for about 20-25 minutes straight on a jerkbait! I ended up with 4 lake keepers and several slot fish and under keepers all on the jerkbait with a 6'6 G-loomis rod and triple fish flourocarbon line.

until next time Good Fishing!!
