Guided Trips on Kentucky Lake (Weather Permitting)
Steve Welch won 1st Place at the Crappie USA Qualifying Tournament on Lake
Shelbyville on May 10, 2008.
I am running guided trips down on Kentucky Lake this spring and hopefully all summer
I am staying at 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 still have May 15-19,26-31.
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!!!!!!
