Crappie Really Biting on Kentucky Lake weather and all. The winter ledge bite is on fire!!!!

Kentucky Lake Best Bet… CRAPPIE!!!!!!

Printable Version

I am running guided trips down on Kentucky Lake this spring and hopefully all summer.

I have a room booked at the Fishtale Lodge (731-642-7113) from March 20th through April 22nd. For spring crappie trips. For those planning on coming I wouldn’t wait to get a room this place is the who’s who of bass fishing tourney guys.

Then I am moving a little ways north to Kentucky Lake Cottages (270-474-8000) from April 23rd through end of May. The crappie spawn travels south to north on this lake so we are tracking it and the bluegill spawn has more areas to fish up here as well. It is near Kenlake Marina midway on the lake.

The bluegill spawn will be in full swing once we get into the 70 degree plus water temps and around the full moon period. If you have never got in on this it is a ball. Huge bluegills that average nine-inches plus and world class sized redear pushing two-pounds. We cast light action rods up onto beds and you never know what you will get.

I only have April 23 left and my May dates are filling as well. I still have May 1-5,8,9,13-19,22-31.

We have two fishing shows left Tinley Park which is this weekend February 11-12 then Cape Girardeau Mo. on March 3-4. By then there won’t be an open date left for the spring.

Don’t worry though once the bluegill spawn is over the crappie will be back out on our summer brush piles putting on the feed bags and our slip bobber and minnow rig will be just as deadly as it was on Shelbyville. So get your trips booked as it should be a great year on one of the best fisheries in the world Kentucky Lake!!!!!!
