Scott Patton's Fishing Report
For September 16, 2016Report for Kentucky Lake from Blood River to New Johnsonville
Had a pretty good week this week on Kentucky Lake! The bait and bass continue to move shallow. The days are shorter now and it’s cooling off the water temps slowly. It’s still been warm this week but looks like some cooler air temperatures are on the way. I really think this will turn on the shallow water bite.
I love fishing top water on Kentucky Lake in the fall, and in the last few weeks I’ve been catching them on top water. I have been fishing Zara Spooks in shad patterns and in Bag5 baits Silver bone color. Still the whopper plopper has been good but seems to work best with the wind.
I have also caught some fish flipping some shallow wood and stake beds. I have been using a ZOOM tube and Ole monster worm with a 3/8 or ½ ounce Pro Tungsten weight.
With the cooler weather moving in I think a vibrating
bait like Lucky Crafts LV 500 will come into play as the
water temps drop. This bait will work well on the schooling
bass. I like to fish it on a Lews Glass rod and 15lb Seaguar
fluorocarbon like. I will fish it along the rocky or gravel
bottom Trying to keep it ticking the bottom as I reel it in.
An angler will have to get in tune with the speed of his
retrieve but once you figure it out you will get a lot more
strikes fishing the bait this way.
