    Anyone doing any good in the Kentucky Lake area? Looking at coming down that way next week and trying our luck.

    Bank fished Barkley today and yesterday. Looks like the striped bass moved into my catfish hole. Caught quite a few but only 1 channel about 2 #. The bass are stealing the baits. Same hole 2 weeks ago pulled out 10 channels.

    Good luck on your trip.

    Thanks for the info. Looks like we're going to Mt. Vernon, In. instead, to fish the Ohio. Either way we went, looks like we're going to get our feathers wet. Hope to get down to Kentucky Lake before the end of the year. Again, appreciate your reply.

    Thanks to all who posted. We went to the Ohio instead and got skunked. Never even got a bite. Wish we had gone to Kentucky Lake instead. The Ohio was coming up pretty hard and full of a lot of trash and even whole trees.
