Kentucky Lake Fishing Report

  After a long and trying farming season I'm done and back on the water. I've made 6 or 7 trips to Kentucky lake crappie fishing this winter so far . It's as good now as I've seen in several years . I've had my limit every trip and everyone I see is catching plenty of fish as well.
  We are using a couple techniques both with great success . I'm spider rigging on ledges in 12 to 16 feet or one pole fishing over my stake beds and brushpiles. I prefer the one pole technique with a 1/8 ounce jig. This is hands on fishing and you get to feel the bite instead of just watching pole tips.
  I've only tried Blood River but I'm getting some good reports from Big Sandy and Johnathon Creek. Here in Blood River most everyone is drift fishing over the flats in 10 to 15 feet in the back 1/3 of the bay. My catches have been a mix of black and white crappie . Most of our fish are from 10 to 11 inches. Some larger fish are being taken in the deeper water.

  I'm sure alot of different baits are working but I've been testing the new Jenko fishing paddle fry. I like it better than any tube jig or single tailed lure I've tried. They have some great colors and sizes coming soon. You can check them out at 

You won't know if you don't go .
