A big hello to all of our Kentucky Lake lovers and fishing friends! Don, Eric, and I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the summer. I just got off of the water, and the weather man says it feels like 105° outside, so it seemed to me that this would be a perfect time to catch everyone up on what has been going on in our boats.
The weather for the rest of the week looks like it is going to remain hot. The highs are expected to be in the mid to upper 90's each day, with Thursday reaching 99°. The best chance of rain appears to be Friday with a 50% chance of PM thunderstorms. Each day, the current forecast calls for very fishable winds. Based on these predictions, one would assume that the heat indexes would be comparable to what we are experiencing today. The best plan one can have in these conditions is to get an early start and miss the heat of the day. Be sure to drink plenty of water and to remain hydrated. Extreme temperatures are nothing to take lightly.
Both lakes are reported today as of being slightly under summer pool and are forecast to fall slightly over the next two days. Each lake is reported to be at 82° with that being reported at each dam.
As far as fishing is concerned, the only species we have been targeting are white and yellow bass. For us, this seems to provide the best action and tasty table fare for our customers. We usually run into some catfish and bass to mix into the action. Over the last five days, at least one of us has been on the water with some pretty good results. I would have to say, hoping not to jinx us, that these have been the most consistent of the summer. Be sure to check out the pictures of our most recent catches. Current always makes it better especially for the white bass. Some days you have it, some days you don't, so you just have to go fishing. Even without current the last few days, we have been able to move around enough to come up with some nice catches. All of our fish are coming along the main river channel. We look for some sort of irregularity like a hump, island, or point and hope we can find some bait and fish. The lures of choice have been the traditional rooster tail or a jigging spoon.
We would like to thank all of you who visited the Moors Resort and fished with us this year. I have had some wonderful people in my boat, and I really enjoyed the time we got to spend on the water. If you have not visited the Moors, now is the time to do it. Summer is flying by, and the kids will soon be back in school. Moors has a lot to offer with great food, a full service marina with boat and jet ski rentals, and a swimming pool just to mention a few. Whether you fish or not, come visit and check out all the things the entire lake area has to offer. If anyone wants to go fishing, give us a call. Don can be reached at 270-559-1366 and my number is 270-331-3519. We would love to get to meet you, and put you on some fish. Thank you, and we hope to see you soon!
