Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley Fishing Report

Water Elevation:  355.8'  (354' Winter pool)

Haven't been much this past month, but I did slide out on the lake a couple days ago.  Found the fish stacked on deep rocky points.  Caught Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Yellow Bass, Crappie, and Bluegill.  Non-stop action for a couple hours.  Caught our fish casting 3/32 oz jigs with Bobby Garland blue ice shad bodies.  We ran into some boys who said they had a good day on bass, fishing silver Buddy blade baits 25 ft deep.  I believe them.
We finally got all our pictures from October and November trips posted.  You can check 'em out on our Pictures page at
Thanks to all the great people who made 2016 one of the best fishing years I've had.  Hope 2017 Is nearly as good!
Happy Holidays!
