Rodney Hairgrove's Fishing Report
For April 10, 2017Report for the Northern Portion of Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley
From the Deck of Rodney Hairgrove...
March was an incredible month for crappie. I had nine consecutive days with boat limits. This is absolutely incredible and I can’t say that I remember ever happening before. Crappie are still being caught in 2-4 foot of water on pea gravel points and spawning banks on 1/8oz pony heads with chartreuse curly tails, slip cork and minnows or a jig and a bobber. Also good numbers are being caught in 8-12 foot of water in brush piles minnow fishing.
Just want to thank all the clients that have booked trips this Spring to make it one of the most successful and rewarding of my career.
Bass fishing is picking up with good numbers of largemouth being caught back in the bays on shallow crank baits. Red and crawfish colors seem to be best. Floating worms near spawning banks are catching some large spawning fish as well. A few fish are starting to be caught early on top water baits.
