Glen let me know when there done, I'll be over pretty fast. Then you can take me next time so we can have another limit. Ha Ha.
Most major feeder creeks that branch off the main and secondary river channels are best depending on the time of year. As we all know the better stringers of 20lb ...more plus seem to come from these creeks. In the winter deeper is always better for schooling bass. In spring as they start there love pattern they can be caught from 2 to 45 ft deep. I fished a local tournament last March where nearly 30 lbs took first place. The team that won are friends of mine and there boat was setting in 35 ft on the main river channel casting up on the ledges to around 10 ft. They were using jigs,& did real well. My partner and I caught 16 lb in 30 mins of of a secondary creek channel that came off the main river going into the mouth of a large bay with plenty of bait fish. We also used jigs. Second place had 20lb doing the same thing, as always got to be in the right place at the right time. Sonar, Sonar, Sonar, got to use it and understand what you are seeing. With today's technology a good unit is a must. Didn't try any spoons or plastic, but will defenatly try this season. Hope this will help. Good Fishing, your friend in CHRIST LARRY.
Jeremy, the Bass & Crappie are both moving in for the spawn at this time. You can expect to catch both of them on main lake and secondary points near deeper ...more water. Look for them on the North banks due to more sun and warmer winds blowing out of the South. Brush piles are always a good bet. In March this year through May there are some larger fish still in 20 to 25 ft on main river ledges. Jigs, Carolina rigged creature baits work best for me. You can also go to Ky/ Lake Barkley sites like TVA. Org and a lot of Guides will post a fishing report as well as baits used. Hope this will help you, GOOD FISHING.
