Just got back from a one day trip to Lake Barkley in Kentucky (5/10/2011). Despite record high water levels, the fishing was great. Both Kentucky and Barkley lakes are dropping pretty fast, so things should improve even more once levels begin to stabilize. And water clarity in the bays are currently very good, which always helps.
My son Tyler and I spent the day with Jim Doom from "Between The Rivers Guide Service". Jim is a very good guide and an…Continue

Just got back from a 2 day trip to Lake of The Ozarks here in Missouri. Took My son Tyler out for a short "Spring Break" fishing trip.
Started out yesterday afternoon fishing below the dam using my jig and float technique, in an effort to catch some White Bass, but they have not showed up yet! Only managed one. But TY and I caught a couple nice Bass.
Spent the night at the cabin and fished the boat docks for Crappie. Water was pretty…Continue

Thanks for friend accept. To answer your questions, there are some monster crappie at kinkaid, fish out of there tied state record last year. If you are member on crappie.com check out il section, look for post black monster, it will give you an idea. Lake Murphysboro, has good gill,pumpkin seed fishing, the are some shellcrackers, but harder to fish for. It is a nice quit lake. Carbondale res has a bluegill overrun, hurting bass population. I am going to hit it hard this spring. I have wanting to go to ky land or reelfoot this year. If you get down here look me up. If you like crappie fishing, you have to try Rend Lake. If you fish there, try along rt154 riprap, lots of sets.
I just like the challenge of fishing in colder weather, and found that our techniques from my home waters adapted well to this amazing fishery. Plus, we got to get in on big chain pickerel and crappie as well, and I like the variety!
Those were caught last week before the rain. Ky Lake water level is 9 ft over summer pool. The beds I found last week are in 13ft of stained water now.
The north end of Ky is closed to recreational boating. That has never happened.
The main lake is dangerous now with floating debris and the current is brutal.
