Fished with my buddy Steve Woodard out of Leatherwood Resort on Kentucky Lake. We caught over 130 fish and kept 25 crappie. All caught trolling on Deep-wee-R’s and Radar-10 crankbaits. Surface Temp 73 degrees and clear with lake only slightly now over summer pool.
Fished Priest middle of the week elevation was 492 and wacked the bass with 1- 4lb largemouth and 1- 4lb small mouth along with 20 other bass all shallow on rocky banks from Fate Sanders to the Hobson Pike bridge. All fish came on a 100 Bandit in Butter Bean color and a few in Chart. black back. Jim Duckworth
|Y’all go get them while they are still around. Males are still shallow (3-4) with females still moving on up. If you can find them, they are really bunched up.|
|Message||Hello Jim, Fished Cordell Hull Thursday. Brought home 15 and caught many more. Caught them casting to the bank, over brush in 8′ of water, and in 30′ of water about 15′ deep over brush. Most were on a 1/8 RoadRunner head with a 2″ Gulp Minnow. Great day.|
Has anyone ever fished VFW lake in Lawrence co? Monty D

|Message||No reports lately on Defeated Creek Crappie. We all know it is full of them. Mr John High works with TWRA to place debris all over that which means he has an insite and catches tons of Crappie. However is anyone catching in his spots. Thanks Fishey|
The bite on Priest right now is on fire on the bank on RoadRunners or minnows under a bobber in the shallow brush along the bank. Jim
