  • Kentucky Lake Fishing Report by Scott Patton

    The bass fishing on Kentucky Lake has been getting better each day. I知 seeing more fish and bait returning to their summer ledge areas. With all the high water we had a couple weeks ago and strong current its forced the bait and bass to seek lesser current areas which was in the creeks and back water areas.


    I知 still catching some bass on secondary ledges but I知 seeing more bait and bass moving out onto the main river ledges. The morning bite has been good and as the sun rises of course it slows down.


    The baits that I知 catching most of my fish on is a Drop shot. I知 using a ZOOM Z3 Swamp Crawler in Morning Dawn and I知 using ZOOMs, Z3 Original worm in morning dawn. I fish a Lews Custom Lite 610 rod, my line choice is 20lb Seaguar Braid with a Seaguar 8lb fluorocarbon leader. I like a 3/8 or 1/2 ounce Pro tungsten drop shot weight depending on the current.


    My next bait has been a ZOOM Ole Monster worm in Blue fleck or Plum on a ス or セ ounce Pro Tungsten weight. I will fish it on 15lb Seaguar fluorocarbon and a 7 ft or 74 Lews rod. Lastly, I致e caught some fish on a セ foot ball jig in green pumpkin and a Carolina rig with a ZOOM Trick worm Green Pumpkin and Morning Dawn.


    I do an on the water ledge class and I have dates open in June and July for guiding and my ledge class.

    Make Some Changes

    As the summer moves on to the fall of the year, changes may make you change, and some changes do not. The one big similarity of summer to fall is the mid-day heat leaving the water temperature to sore like its summer time. This factor alone makes early fall fishing extremely... read more
