Just wanted to say that I hope everyone had a great and blessed Christmas with their family and friends!! 2017 is shaping up to be a tremendous year fishing wise! The reports from KDFWR have been great for all species of fish and if this fall and winter foresee what is coming this year it is going to be spectacular. Let’s go fishing!!

The Kick’n Bass crew will be attending the Let’s Go Fishing Show next weekend,

Water temps are about 47 degrees in the morning and warming up to about 49 degrees in the afternoons. These temps are perfect for crappie fishing! Weather temps are to be steady for this time of year and New Year’s Day will be close to 60! Water color on the main lake is clear to about 3 feet. Levels are at 355.9 which is about two feet higher than normal for this time of year. The TVA is pulling just enough water to keep the level where it is now for the foreseeable future.

Crappies are still feeding pretty heavy. We are spider rigging anywhere between 8 and 18 feet of water. Jigs with a crappie nibble have taken some fish but tipped with a minnow has been best. Best colors have been Kentucky green, Pearl and Electric Chicken. Fish have been holding pretty tight to cover but on the warmer, sunnier days they have suspended above, and moved out, from the cover. Put in the time and you will be rewarded.
I haven’t fished for any other species this month but have seen some very big Largemouth being caught. We have had some very good incidental catches of yellowbass, bluegills and small largemouth while crappie fishing.
