"Is it winter or spring? Are the fish ahead of schedule and confused? Will spawning phases start early this year?  Those are just a few of the questions on the minds of anglers these days who are somewhat in awe of the unusual weather."

"I caught a lot of fish in the last 7 days; some were deep but most were shallow."

"If this weather pattern holds up another week like it's supposed to, we may have spawning Crappie the end of next week!?"

"Some of the best days on Kentucky Lake can be in the winter months of January and February, especially if we have the warmer days like we have had so far this year."

"February can be a great month to catch some really big fish! I will look for fish on main lake and in the mouths of the creeks and bays."

With the temps being not overly cold I am going out on a limb and predicting a late March/early April spawn. But don’t hold me to that!!

"Our population of 10 to 11 and a half inch fish is the best I've seen in 24 years of guiding on Kentucky Lake. There are limits of crappie being caught in every area of the lake from the north end to the south."

"Although none of the reports indicated big numbers of fish being taken, the reports did indicate that bass were feeding and most people were getting at least a limit."

Covering:  North Kentucky Lake and North Lake Barkley

"Due to the unseasonably warm temperatures, whitebass and yellow stripes are still going strong."
