Fluke's boat has two giant graphs with the lake map and waypoints.
You just gotta find the shell beds and make sure you stay on them.

I have read most of Dave Stewart's articles on KY Lake ledge fishing.

Kentucky Lake ledge Fishing {pics}

Superfluke and I spent a few days on KY Lake recently and I sure learned a thing or two about mid-lake, deep water bass fishing !
It was an education to say the least...
For me, If I can't see a downed tree, stump, weedline, rip-rap, submerged point, or whatever, I'm out of my element when it comes to hooking bass...

Here's the report.

The first day we were blown off the lake 3 times? by nasty rain/thunder.

Here's Superfluke using his time wisely {as it pours down rain} to re-rig for another try.




The next day, we picked off a few fish here and there, but for a newby like me, dragging a Carolina Rig across the shell beds {ledges}, where the water depth could vary from 10 FOW to 30 FOW during a single cast was an education {to say the least}.

If you hooked a fish, it was a good one, as this pic shows. The other bass we caught were nice, but not quite pic-worthy...




The Barge traffic on KY Lake can be heavy at times.





For those who are interested, in terms of accommodations, we stayed {again} at the "luxurious" Bel -Air Motel. The A/C was ice cold. So much so, that my partner slept in a hoody and flannel pajamas. Sure, the bathroom door did not close, but who cares when it it 90+ humid degrees outside and the Motel has all the free ice you can carry.

You're gonna need it battling the merciless sun...
