    Anyone doing any good on KY Lake, or barkley lake?

    If so, any hints? I fish the northern end of the lake (near the dam).

    Thanks,

    Tony you never stated what species of fish you were targeting. I was at the Lakes on tuesday hoping to get some skipjack for bait fish. No luck water was up and only the birds was doing any good. I would say one could catch some crappie off of sets or structure. I've had luck in sled creek and Johnthan Creek early on. I don't have any up to date info.

    Sorry, but I was thinking that since this is the Crappie thread it was understood.

    out at LBL at ginger bay i was killing them last week before the cold front me and a friend caught 59 in one day out there fishing a point 15ft deep hitting the crappie at 7ft of the 15 ft. most all the crappie we caught was between 12 and 15 inches we was spider rigging using minnows. how this cold front is going to effect them I'm not sure but I'll find out latter this week when i go back out there. here is a pic of one of the crappie i caught.
