A warm hello from the Big Kahuna's Guide Service to all of our fishing friends, and Kentucky Lake fans! The three of us hope that all has been well since the last time we checked in and that each of you enjoyed the eclipse event. What a spectacular event that was to get to experience!
The lakes are now getting down to the levels that I pay special attention to where I am running to prevent any unwanted mishaps with underwater hazards. I always prefer to play it safe in that ballgame, but that is just my personal choice.
On the fishing end of the spectrum, very little has changed since my last report as far as what we have been trying to do for our customers. Our efforts continue to center around chasing the white and yellow bass. Until last week, the white bass had been difficult for me to find in numbers, and most of what we caught in my boat were the yellows. As always some days are better than others, and it sometimes requires a lot more patience and searching, but we were able to make what I would consider pretty nice catches. Last week, TVA began generating more current, and the three of us were able to make some of the best catches of white bass that we had in some time. I also noticed that I picked up more bass and catfish during this time as well. Our fish continue to come on Kens Hybrid spinners and various styles of jigging spoons. We continue to search along the old Tennessee river channel, mouths of major creeks, and river islands. Every once in a while, I have been lucky enough to be near the fish when they jumped. The jumps I have seen were sporadic and not long lasting, but if I was near one and quick enough, sometimes I have been able to snatch a few out before they vanished. Some of these fish came on a small jig tied behind a popping cork.
For anyone out there that has not had the chance to visit Moors and the Kentucky Lake area, don't wait any longer. There is still plenty of summer left to enjoy. The Moors has everything to offer that a person needs while they are on vacation. The entire lakes area has so many things to see and do for people of any age. Regardless of whether you fish or not, come visit Moors on Kentucky Lake. If any of you would like to give the fish a shot, give one of us a call. My cell is 270-331-3519 and Don's is 270-559-1366. We would like to get to meet you and spend some time on the water with you. Hopefully, we will be able to find some and send you home with a nice mess of fish to eat. We still have dates open in August, and a lot of dates in September and October. Thanks to all of you that have visited and fished with us this year or in any of the years in the past!
