To Fish Humps In The Mourning Or Not

Recommended Posts

I just returned from ky lake from a 3 day pratice. Went on April 28-30. Water was around 65-67 and I fished probably 20 hours on buck brush and mustard grass. Caught 2 that was 14in. Last day with 20 mins left I went to a 18ft hump that dropped to 25ft and caught a 5 1/2 no eggs no red marks. I'm thinking they have alrdy spawned or the big ones atleast because I never even saw fish take off or catch any on the banks. Suppose to be a full moon Sunday with temps in the 80's for a few days. I have a tournament on Tuesdays there. Should I just go to the hump I caught that 5lb on and graph it and fish or go to shallow banks in the mourning of the tournament. I fished 1 hump and caught one keeper and had to leave. I live 4 hours away so I can't practice again until the tournament.

Tournaments are won and lost on the decisions you make!

On KY. Lake the bluegills are on the beds (heavily) south ky.. I'm certain you can catch a few LMB on pop r's . You need to fish the ledges as well, IMO.. To pick up kicker fish.. Good luck!

Guess what day it is.........HUMP DAY

On another note I hope you don't fish while mourning, I would think you would catch more in the morning! ;)

If a guy isn't careful on Kentucky Lake there will be mourning! That lake has tried to kill me a couple of times!

Fish the offshore humps and ledges. Pay attention to current. Good luck.

Quite honestly, it sounds like you aren't on the fish, so I don't think it matters. 

 

My advice would be to hit that hump - On the way to wherever they had the weigh-in last Saturday!

 

Retreads are better than nothing.

Never fished KY lake, only watched several TV tournaments held on it.

Outside humps and ledges seem to produce when there is current on KY lake, no current, few fish caught is my observation. If they are drawing water early, creating current, fish outside structure early.

If your strength is fishing deeper water, that is where you should gamble your entry fee...., no money at risk it doesn't matter where or how you fish.

The BFL weights were way down yesterday. 16-11 won. The fish are in a major transition phase right now and they are scattered as bad as I have seen them in a long time. My advice would be to go to Barkley if possible.

I don't think you should fish humps while you're mourning.   That could bum you out, and you probably not get all the positive energy you should out of the fishing experience.  I'd just go ahead and mourn.  Mourn all you want, or as much as you feel is necessary, whichever comes first.  Get your head straight, or as straight as feels comfortable for you.  Then, the morning after you are done mourning,  go fish all the humps you want.

 

I'm just glad that I could help in this situation.  Genuine, deep counseling is never easy.

RELAX..

I posted that for your benefit, all caps means you're yelling. Forum (not just this forum) etiquette frowns on that behavior, but I see from your response yelling is the least of your etiquette problems.
