Well duck season is finally over and it's time to trade in the shotguns for the spider rigs. The fishing scene at Ky Lake has been downright tough as of late. We have had a massive shad kill mixed with some below normal water temps that have made the Crappie somewhat nonexistent. Sauger fisherman are having a tough time as well. The bite should start to return to normal within a few weeks barring any drastic weather patterns. Typically February tends to be an overlooked month by many fisherman. February typically sends some early spawners(especially the blacks) in search of staging grounds. As the daylight hours get longer the Crappie will start to stage on the creek channel edges. Sometimes they will stack up in great numbers awaiting their spring ritual. Early stagers mixed with hardly any boat traffic can make for some of the best days of the year. But beware February and mother nature can be brutal. Be sure to check your local forecasts daily and always take extra dry/warm clothes with you. I still have February 19, 20, 24, 26, & 28 open and March 5, 6, 25, 26, 27. I only have the 9th and 10th left in April. I am now booking for May post spawn Crappie and Redear trips. I will post any cancellations that I have in case someone would like a last minute trip. My trips are extremely educational, courteous and fun. Feel free to give me a call 615-207-1937 and I can help with travel or lodging. Here is the first of about 800 beds that we made this winter. Looking forward to a great year on beautiful KY Lake.
