Good deal. Thanks for the info! I have a club tourney on Graham this Sunday. Don't think I'll get to pre-fish it though.

I have fished their several times.I like to use a fluke with no weight on them with a swivel so it not kink your line.I have had alot of luck with this set up early their don't fish it fast just keep it kind of slow.Use the flake color or shad color and have a jig as a back up ready also.

It was well into the 50's in the creeks Saturday on KY lake, but I suspect they have fallen into the mid to upper 40's by now.

I fished a 30 boat tournament Saturday. Had 16.84 and got smoked. Took 25.19 to win. All four sacks ahead of us had over 21lbs. Freakin lake is gettin unreal. Big fish was 8.39!

RatLtraps and 100 bandits are what we caught em on. The big sack was supposedly caught on spinnerbaits.

What part of the lake username? We always fish our club tourney there the first weekend of May every year, but by then, the buckbrush is flooded and everybody is flipping the brush. Usually takes at least 30 lbs for 2 days to place. We put in at Buchanan's.

Around the New Johnsonville area mostly. I suppose that's considered the middle of the lake.

I fish from the I40 bridge to the Paris bridge most of the time.

The first week of May is legendary for flippin. Look for layed down willows and bushes in 3' of water near the creek channel and you shouldn't have much trouble catching 30lbs in 2 days.

There's only one timeframe better for catching 20+lb and that is post spawn in the first part of June on ledges with deep diving crankbaits. Although I have had 30lb days (not during a tourney of course)in the bushes but they don't last long. After about 3 days, they get overrun with 3lb fish it seems. Catch 5 of them and go throw a rig on the point adjacent to those spawning areas for a couple of kicker fish.

Where exactly is Buchanan's? Isn't that close to Paris Landing?

Yeah. It's in Eagle creek right at the split of Big Sandy and the lake just south of the 79 bridge. In our tourney last year, we had like 28 lbs for two days and was 4th or 5th, but like you said, they were all 3 lb fish. We couldn't get a kicker. I've done real well down near Lick and Leatherwood creeks that time of year. We also got on em good with crankbaits and spinnerbaits along an old sunken roadbed and bridge back in Eagle and caught a 19.55 lb sack there year before last on the first day. Just kept making passes up and down it. Occasionally threw a rig when we quit catching em chunking and winding. I'm heading down there to prefish a couple weekends before we fish on May 2-3. Can't wait.

There are a couple big fish spots that I know of in Lick but they usually dont fire up until later in May or early June. If the fish spawn out a little earlier, they'll probably be good when your there.

Leatherwood has one spot that is a killer for a kicker fish on a big worm about the same time those spots in Lick fire up. Its a pretty deep creek that has one little bend in the channel where theres about a 4' shear ledge that goes from 18-22'. Its the deepest place I've caught big fish on the lake. It's generally only good for one bite but if throw a a plum Baby Huey in there, you better hold on!

Holler at me closer to your tournament, and I'll give you a couple coordinates.
