Kentucky Lake Bass Fishing Day 1


I hit Kentucky Lake with my friend Drew for a few days for some offshore structure fishing and shallow bush flipping. This lake is full of good largemouth bass! But, it also spotted and smallmouth bass species and on this day we caught all three. I really wanted to figure out the ledge fishing bite and got a great experience with what it takes to get these Kentucky lake largemouth ledge bass to bite. I’ve never seen a lake where the bass with feed so heavily in an instant, and then just as quickly shut down. We ended up catching a few good bass off of each ledge spot and moving around to a few others. In all we probably graphed over 20 spots to finally find a few that actually held bass. Make sure to watch the following day to see the other shallow bite as well. There were not as many big bass up shallow, but there were plenty of good ones.
