It's the full moon in the middle of May. The Largemouths are making their last big surge of spawning activity, and the Red Ear, Bluegill, and Catfish are at their peak of spawning. We had a great day catching lots of big Red Ears a couple days ago. Today I plan on catching some BIG ole Basses!

"Kentucky Lake Fishing Report Feb 8 2010 Perhaps area anglers have gotten spoiled the last few years. There have been winters when light winds and warm temps worked against waterfowlers but played right into the plans of fishermen suffering from cabin fever. This year has been different. From high water to low temperatures, winter weather has been stubborn to loosen its grip. Anglers have not fared well this winter in the Kentucky Lake area but perhaps that means more fish are left once spring arrives. for the rest of this fishing report go to http://www.parislanding.com/fishing_report_2810.htm"

"Feb 4th 2010 This time last week we had a water level near summer pool and the gates were open at Kentucky Dam. Today the gates are still open and we are about 2.5 feet above winter pool with a surface water temperature at the Dam of 44 degrees. The projection is for more of the same for several days to siphon the runoff created by the heavy snows from this weekend. Even if we have warmer air temps, I expect with the snow melt that the lake temps will stay about the same or drop a little. Stay tuned..

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Kentucky Lake at 52 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Kentucky Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- minnows, grubs and jigs
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 52 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Kentucky Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
