Fishing Report from the Kick’n Bass Ranger Boat.
Bass Fishing …
The Ledge bite has been real spotty this week and we’ve gone thru
some periods of tough fishing. None the less, some real good fish
have been caught like the one Scotty Hill from Northern KY (photos)
caught this week. Most of our fish over 5 pounds have come from the
deeper ledges where the larger baitfish schools are more prevalent.
Shakey Head combos consisting of a ¼ oz.PJ’s Bass Extractor jig and
ZMan Finesse worm has been the best liure … basically dead sticking
Dock Pattern … With the water being drawn down this pattern has
waned a little but is still good enough to talk about it. Using spinning
gear with 6lb line and a Zman ZINKERZ (Senko type lure) casting
WACKY style, we caught some fish around boat docks especially those
on the main lake and with spud poles. The ElaZtech construction
makes this the most durable stickbait on the market and it’s loaded
with salt so it sinks at a controlled, slow rate when rigged weightless.
The tough material allows you to wacky rig without the use of O-rings
or other devices. With the young of the year fry approaching 1-2
inches the larger shad and bluegill are having are having a field day and the bass are taking advantage
of the shad and bluegill. When things slow up or you can’t fish where you want boat docks are a good
way to go.Top Water … early and late surface action has been only fair on both white bass and
largemouth as the two species are schooling together and herding baitfish. Prime locations are around
boat docks and gravel points at the mouth of the bays. A two-hook version of the SPRO McStick is a
good choice using a jerk, jerk, pause and the jerk retrieve.

Crappie … Trolling cranks for crappie has been consistent for our clients this week. Capt. Rich has been trolling SPRO cranks deep 16-19 feet and catching some big blacks and
whites. The numbers have been respectable each day.
White bass … fishing has been good for those clients fishing from the pontoon. We’re catching some
big fish on the ledges and the mouth of the bays on a Steel Shad blade bait and Ken’s Hybrid Spinner.
The fish are just now beginning to school up nicely and good number of big fish are being caught.
Bluegill … Slowing considerably but still good numbers being caught by our clients this week using a
Shelton’s Bluegill bug and a Ken’s cricket with and without a live cricket. Fishing a cricket under an ESB
slip bobber was a strong second.
Catfish … fair on the top of the ledges next to deeper water 20 plus on a Steel Shad blade bait.

First time at Kentucky Lake. I was a bit disappointed. We really wanted to catch some Crappie to bring home for a good fish fry but with the high water and currant it was impossible to find them. I had high expectations of catching some large , LMB. Don't get me wrong, we did catch fish but nothing over 2-1/2 lbs. We even hired a guide and he couldn't get us on any large fish. We had a great time there and looking to go back again next year.
