  • Fishing guides, fishing bait dealers, fishing equipment dealers
  • Real estate companies and realtors

Gold and Silver Level Enhanced Listings are also available but are limited in quantity. Please contact us and see if we have open slots available.  Remember, we have unlimited slots available for our Bronze Level Enhanced Listings.

Exclusive Sponsored Emails

A Word From Our Sponsor is a special email that can be sent to our email newsletter (The Kentucky Lake Explorer) subscribers that informs them of special deals, coupons, events, or whatever news you want to share.  Rates are well below industry standards. We limit these types of emails to just one per week so our subscribers aren't "spammed" with constant offers.  Contact us for details.
