Before I say anything – let me first say - Wow!!  This lake has it all.   It was a total homerun of a fishing outing.

Our guide, Craig Hipsher, met us in Fairdealing, Kentucky at 4PM where the temperature was 97 degrees.  Can you catch fish in the afternoon when it is this hot?  Craig didn’t think there would be any problem.  In fact, he asked what we would like to fish for like he was a short order cook at a truck stop.  2 hours later we were in the middle of Kentucky Lake having boated White Bass, Striped Bass, Largemouth Bass, and a 30 lb Blue Catfish.  Are you kidding me?  In fact, the White Bass, Striped Bass, and Blue Catfish were all personal firsts for Taylor.  To top it off we also found out that Craig and I were born on the same day in 1961, so you knew we had to have a good day with karma like that.

In four hours we landed 19 fish, our best fish count for any State to date.  This was just plain fun.  Craig caught another dozen himself as he took us to college on White and Striped Bass fishing.

We were on the road again at 8PM for Mississippi’s Pickwick Lake the next morning.  In total the day involved fishing two of America’s premiere trophy lakes, driving nearly 400 miles, and meeting two of the nicest and knowledgeable guides you’ll ever find
