High Skies By The Time I Saw This.....

"That is crazy that they continue to spawn like that. I'm positive that most of our bluegill and particularly shellcracker, do a one time spawn."

Our Barkley Lake trip

First a little history and then I'll tell you what worked so well for us. I've been looking for a trophy redear fishery to take my family to for quite some time and Barkley Lake's fairly close to where we live at 190 miles. I booked the trip way back in January and have been chomping at the bit to get down there. As the day approached for us to leave, I was wondering if the high water they were having would ruin our trip, not to mention weather being on the cool side. I knew monster redear…

Thanks for the comments Troy. I have a hard time targeting the Big Shells when the Coppernose are busting up shallow. The fight on light tackle is awesome! I get down to the Francis-Marion lakes in S.C. when I want to concentrate on nice Shellcrackers. Although it sounds inviting to back into a shady spot and put some red wigglers on the bottom. Good luck to you up in Indiana Troy.

Troy...Richmond Mill is owned and operated by the King Fisher Society and offers a variety of hunting and fishing packages. The lake was drained and rebuilt back in 2000 and they installed a food supplement system with the help of Bob Lusk ( on this site). It was refilled and stocked in 2005 and there are a few shellcrackers in there but I have caught none. For more info check their website at kingfishersociety.com.
