Southern Kentucky Lake Fishing Report
The lake is at 354.36
The fishing has been stable the past week and I look for the bite to get even better. We have had several cold fronts, storms and plenty of wind. Water temperatures have fallen into the lower sixties. The bite is good, catching quality fish. They are in schools, so when you find them you should be able to catch them, just keep making passes through the area, I’m fishing the grass beds south of the ferry crossing to new Johnsonville. I like to drift with the wind anytime I’m fishing grass; I try to stay off the trolling motor as much as possible. I see guys fishing against the wind and current and I know they have to keep their foot on the trolling motor. I really feel the fish can hear this and can become aware of your presence. So try to drift with the wind and idle up then make another drift. You won’t spook the school as much and you will be able to catch more bass.
My best bite is coming on a spinnerbait a ½ ounce blue glimmer or if the wind has stained up the water I will go to a solid white or white and chartreuse. Willow leaf blades gold 4.5 and a nickel 3.5 or Colorado. A trailer hook is advised.
Its fall now and foul weather will hit us, being prepared for this is a must. If a your out on the water and a cold rain or winds hit during your fishing trip having a rain suite may be ok, but it’s so important to have one that will truly keep you dry during the day. I have used so many expensive rain suites and still get wet and cold. I now use Gill’s rain gear; this company has gear that will keep you dry and warm no matter how much it rains. If you’re in the market for a fantastic rain gear then check out Gillna.com feel free to contact me if you need.

I have a few days open still in November; it’s a great time to catch some good fish.
