Scott Patton Fishing report for Kentucky Lake:    28 April 2017

Scott Patton Fishing report for Kentucky Lake

4-28-17

Water Temp 65

Lake level 357.63

Fishing on Kentucky Lake has been good, but a angler better keep an open mind fishing the next week or so! The lake was close to a foot over summer pool and I was catching good fish flipping a ZOOM Z Hog and Baby Brush Hog with Cane Craw as a scent. I am flipping a 3/8 Pro Tungsten on Seaguar Braid and 25lb Fluorocarbon.

In the last couple days the lake has dropped over two feet close to three feet. This has made it tough on finding spawning bass in the bushes. The water may come up again if we get enough rain to bring it up again. I really don’t understand why the TVA drops the lake down this low during our spawn but that’s what we’re left to deal with as anglers. I just hope we’ve had enough fish to spawn or the ones that haven’t spawned will still spawn. We will find out in the next ten days or so!

With the lake being as low as it is “right now” I plan to fish top water and spinner baits on the channel banks in the morning, then switching to a jig with a ZOOM Z hog and a shakey head. I will also start looking for bass on the secondary ledges or creek channel leading out of the creeks. I will be fishing Lucky Craft crankbaits on both areas and I will keep an eye out for the shad spawn.

In the larger creeks on the lake I will fish some of the ledges inside the creek itself. Cranking lucky craft crank baits, jigs and a ZOOM swim bait will be my choice of lures.

Scott Patton Fishing report for Kentucky Lake

4-12-17

Water Temp 64

Lake level 357.69

The fishing has been good and still catching some fish on my Lucky Craft 1.5 and 2.5, also some fish on ZOOMs 5” swimmers swim baits and a chatter bait in the creeks.

The lake is getting close to summer pool and that will put the water into the yellow flowers that has grown really good due to the early warm weather we’ve had. The bass and bait will be moving in the flowers soon, if we don’t get high water into the bushes this year the bass will be spawning in the flowers.

I will be fishing ZOOMs swim baits and spinnerbaits in the flowers. Also I will be flipping the flowers hoping to get a baby brush hog or ZOOMs Z hog on a nest. I will use a Pro tungsten 3/8 weight most of the time but if it a dead calm day with no wind I will go to a ¼. I prefer to flip my baits in the flowers on 25 lb Seaguar fluorocarbon and a Lews flipping stick. You will want to pay close attention a spawning fish can pick up the bait with the slightest of pressure and that’s where my Pro Tungsten weights come into play. They are so much more sensitive than lead and I can detect these really light bites.

I will fish as many areas as possible early because spawning fish are a lot more aggressive early in the morning during low light. I also like to rig a ZOOM lizard on a 1/8 ounce Pro Tungsten on 20 lb Seaguar and slowly swim the lizard thru the flowers. If a bass strikes and misses then I will flip my brush hog in the area, more than likely there is a bed there.
