Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 7/9/11

Posted on July 9, 2011 by admin

The fishing remains very good on Table Rock during the extereme heat we are having. The water temperature is still hanging in the mid 80s. The water level continues to fall about a quarter foot a day. There are still fish hanging around the original shore line out to about 20 feet. These fish can be caught on a tube, a shaky head, a jig and I've been having some good luck throwing a texas rigged green pumpkin lizard. The deep Kentucky fishing is just getting better. The depth seems to change a lot but once you establish how deep they are that day you can go just about anywhere and fish that depth and catch some fish. There are a few areas that are just stacked with fish so when you catch one check the area carefully as you might be in one of those spots. We had a front go through Thursday night and on my trip on friday the morning started off very slowly. We would watch the fish come up off the bottom and just look at the nightcrawlers then swim back down to the bottom. It got to be frustrating but I knew it would just be a matter of time and they would become more aggressive. We went and fished a ledge on a bluff and picked up 6 fish in about a half hour. We then checked out some deep treetops with no success. By this time we had some good cloud cover move in and a nice Northeast wind pick up. I told my clients it was time to go check those crawler fish. When we got there it was on. Not only did they get aggressive but the big girls came up to feed also. In the next hour we put probably 20 fish in the boat and lost about 10 others. We had several Kentuckies that were pushing the 4 pound mark. I'll bet our best five would have weighed atleast 18 pounds. Thats a good string of Kentuckies no matter where you fish. That just goes to show you that you have to check your main spots a couple times each day especially when conditions change.

Untill next time Good Fishin'
