    BGK fishing @ Barren Lake

    BGK and I have a 5 day fishing trip scheduled for early April 2018.
    We’re looking for largemouth primarily and haven’t fished Barren before.
    Any “good” suggestions on spots for some great action?
    BGK is my son and I really would like to have a successful/fun trip w/him.

    Great action on Barren? Barren has been on a down slide the last few years.The fishing is way off. The fish numbers are not like they have been,due to over fishing,over keeping by the catch and eat crowd, and the fact that Major 150 boat tourneys and all others that go out of Portoliver release their fish there, Some seem to think that a lot of the fish are being sucked out the dam. You can have a real good day every now and then but the consistency is not there. I live here and fish it about every week. Lake Cumberland or Nolin would be best.

    Thanks Bobby
    Obviously not what I wanted to hear. We’ve already committed to a cabin on the water at Barren, so I guess we’ll hope for the best.
    A few days on the lake w/my son even if the bite is sparse is better than sitting around w/cabin fever.
