  2. We're are the best places to fish on Beshear lake?

    1. Josh Heatherly 0
      Depends what you are fishing for, bass hit pretty good around the docks and downed trees near ledges, Crappie hit better when you are vertical fishing above vegetation ...more 6'-8' depth, haven't really done any catfishing at Beshear so can't help you there.
  3. Largemouth Bass with a Plastic worm

  • Ohio River - Smithland

    Props and trolling motors routinely fall prey to the vast amount of standing and fallen timber. The largemouth, Crappie, channel cats and Bluegill love it. The numerous creek arms hold many fish.
