    i haven’t been since last week.
    just talked to a guy from work – so take it as second hand advice…

    he says that they have been catching keepers on drops in the creeks close to the main river. i interpret that to be any little pocket that has some depth to it off the main channel. lures working were crankbaits and football head jigs. that’s all he gave me. based on the lure selection, i’m guessing they were fishing 4-12ft. but that’s totally a guess.

    last week, we found fish in all sorts of places. up shallow relating to rocks, out on main river humps. a lot of is is going to depend on if there is any current running. if there is… i’d start out shallow on the main lake, then move to the ledges. that’s just me though.

    good luck. post a report.

    I’ve been catching them with a frog in the grass, deep diving cranks off creek channel bends along with Carolina rig.

    The main lake ledge bite between Station Camp to Bluegrass has been productive with big plastic worms.

    not sure what Brian has been using, but you can’t go wrong with a 10″ plum powerworm with a 3/8oz or 1/2oz weight.
    use the lightest weight you can get away with. not sure why plum works everywhere in the summer, but it’s the deal at KY Lake and Old Hickory.

    Dakota, have you been the fishing the main lake grass [Cedar Creek to Saundersville] or stuff back in the creeks [Spence Creek, Drakes Creek, etc]?

    My favorites are plum, red shad, black. I use a lot of Baby Hueys and Ole monters. I use t-rig 1/2 to 3/4oz bullet weight with #5 straight shank hook. 20lbs test
