Shelbyville on May 10, 2008.
I have decided to shut down for the season on Shelbyville. The weather is too cold, roads are to slick to be pulling a 3000lb. boat and the wind is all over the place. I will resume in late February of 2015 with reports.
However I am putting together a list to go to Kentucky Lake during the winter months. I need to string together a week and down there we need light winds to get out on the deep drop-offs so you must have your bags packed with little notice. If interested shoot me an e-mail because it is the winter months that you get the wall hangers.
I have put up open schedule for 2015 for both Kentucky Lake and Lake Shelbyville. I would not wait until I start going to winter fishing shows or you regulars won’t get in until summer. The schedule is on front page of website and I have been booking trips daily so you will see dates disappear on it daily as well. It is kept up to date.
