Yesterday we caught Largemouth Bass, Yellow Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Lake Perch, and Sauger. The bite was a little slow overall but frantic in short spurts. We caught fish on both artificial lures and live bait. All these fish came from fishing 10' flats with a little wood on them in the middles of bays, backs of bays and off the secondary channel of the main lake. The other day I saw largemouth Bass and Catfish busting big shad on the surface.

One thing's for sure: the fish are moving around in schools of mixed species, and you're not goings to catch them if you don't go!

June bug lizzards, green pumpkin biffle bug, spinners, spoons and top waters are all producing.

Catching Crappie by casting jigs (glimmer blue) and vertical fishing minnows.

Spoons, spinners and minnows will catch a good bunch of them.

This is one of the best times of the year to catch Blue Cats. Fish 40' to 50' deep off the river channel with night crawler,
shrimp, hot dog or your own favorite concoction for good action.

I've been fishing for Largemouth, Smallmouth, Yellow Bass,Crappie, Bluegill, and Catfish lately. I've caught some of all of the above, but overall the bite has been slow, except for the Blue Cats. Right now and for the next month is the best time of year to pattern Blue Cats. It is common to catch 30 to 60 nice eating size "Blues" in a 4 hour trip.

The weather has been pleasant and it's a good time to enjoy ourbeautiful lakes.

LARGEMOUTH BASS: Finesse worms fished around shallow wood has been most productive for me lately.

BLUEGILL: Split shot night crawlers around brush, stumps, grass, and vertical structures will get a nice mess of gills.

YELLOW BASS: Catching Yellow Bass on spoons, spinners, and minnows around brush on shallow flats and on deep ledges.

CRAPPIE: Jigs and minnows are producing some nice Crappie when fished around brush in 8' to 20' of water.

CATFISH: You can catch Channel Cats almost anywhere. Blue Cats congregate in deep water and readily take shrimp, night crawlers, hot dog, or whatever special concoction you like to use.

Memorial Day weekend is an exciting fishing time here on kentucky Lake.  The deeper "ledge fishing" is normally really getting good and it has!  Check out recent pics on my website www.CaptainKirksGuideService.com

With recent cooler temps and generous rains, the deeper bank fishing has been real good.  There are large numbers of fish "frye" (this year's hatch) along deeper rocky banks and around brush piles.  The Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, and Catfishing is good.

Catching good numbers of both Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass along deeper rocky banks and on deep ledges.  Small crawfish immitations will catch 'em on the bank.  Jigs, swimbaits, and large worms will catch 'em on the ledges.

Drop-shotting a small minnow around stumps in 10' to 20' of water is productive for Crappie right now.

Fishing gravel points 4' to 8' deepwith "Bluegill Bugs" has been producing some real nice fish.

Channel Cats seem to be a little everywhere.  Fish a night crawler  4' to 20' deep on rocky banks for good action.

Hope everyone has a safe, enjoyable Memorial Weekend.  A special thanks to our military veterans who have given so we can enjoy our American way of life.

I have a few good dates available for June.  If interested, give me a call at 877-354-6017 or 270-354-6017.
