    Hey everybody I am heading to Kentucky Lake area at the end of the week for a few days with a little vacation with the boys. I was just wondering if anybody could help me out with some areas yall catch your cats there...on the lake, around the dam, etc. I have never catfished there and was just wondering bout the best things to do. ALso I was wanting to try and get some skippies while I am there and would REALLY appreciate any info yall can help me out with. Thanks a head of time!

    If you are looking for Flatties, Energy Lake is a great spot. Griz could explian in better detail as he has actually hauled in a couple of monsters there. Anyway, another pretty good spot is at Kenlake park, if you go there you should see volleyball net and a Gazebo beyond that. I like to setup on the floodwall there, facing the bridge that crosses to Fenton boat ramp. The channels are pretty good from there, as well as out on the rocks that extend toward Kelake Marina. Good luck!!

    me and griz took some nice flatheads out of energy lake in LBL. kenlake state park is a real good place when the catfish are comin in which they should be. i've caught nice channel cats and decent flatheads at the park. griz (my dad) has caught some monster channels there at the park, 20+ pounds. devils elbow is also a good place. if you want to catch some skipjacks the dam would be a good place. hope the info. helps a little, if you need any more just let me know. have fun!

    We did alright this weekend at Kentucky Lake, we fished a place called Jonathan Creek I think it was. We prolly caught 30 crappie and prolly 50-60 yellow bass, a nice skipjack (that is in the freezer:)), a few small bass, and a drum lol. That is what we caught all weekend besides a few GOOD buzzes. It was a pretty fun weekend though just me and the boys. You all have some nice sized crappie down there we caught some good ones. We were using light colored jigs (white, silver) and caught them in about 3-9 ft of water. Just to let yall know.

    There were a lot of people catching them in that Jonathan Creek area. We caught them in about 3-9 ft of water on brush with light colored jigs. Hope this helps and maybe give that area a try!
