Okay guys, here's the latest.

Jaskoh and possibly Illinoisbasser are going to need partners/boats to fish with/out of.  So anyone with a boat and no partner who would like or need one, let us know on this thread.  YET, there are rentals available at the lake.  All that is needed in addition is a large cooler with a portable aerator (livewell).  I will not allow stringers or baskets for the tourney.  Maybe a couple nonboaters can get together on a rental and still fish.   I will make sure any info on boaters without partners will be posted ASAP.

As it stands now, cart7 and Valascus are definitely coming over from MO and CJ is possibly coming up from KY.   The Illinois contingent is unknown since this is an open tourney.  I got the word out to my old club at their meeting last night (50 - 60 members) and my favorite bait shop has posted a flyer for this tourney and has graciously donated some product making door prizes possible.

Dunno, I forgot to check boat rental costs today.

BTW, it was freezing this morning.  Dink braved the cold wind, ran up lake and knocked em dead.  I stayed down lake and caught nothing.  Moved up the lake and finally caught some fish.

Fishing report:

The fishies are eating at WashCo.  Illinoisbasser and I ended up with 20 keepers with the six biggest a little over 20 lbs.  Like cart7 said, we ran up north to the shallower water that was getting wind and threw spinnerbaits.  Persistence paid off.  The good news being the fish getting on a Fall feed for a day at least.  The water temps around the lake ranged from 67 to 74 on the surface.  Water was stained to murky with only 1-2 feet visibility.  I-basser's biggie was just under 5 lbs. and mine was just under 6.

Tourney update:

For anyone interested in a rental boat and prices contact John @ 618.327.9311.  My local bait store, Fairview Sports in Fairview Heights, has graciously donated some baits for this upcoming tourney.  These will be given out as attendance prizes.  Simonton's Bait Store there at the lake (John) wil also be providing some goodies for the tourney.  I alsready stated in another thread that the weigh-in bags ARE provided and I have access to some small tubs for use as holding tanks if needed.  As far as lake rules and other tourney rules, those will be covered before take-off Saturday morning.

As far as I know, Jaskoh and myself will be renting a boat. So count me in. CJ shot me a PM. He won't be making the trip. We should have a B.Resource members tourney on Kentucky Lake sometime. Early November?

I'm sure it could be arranged! 8-)

When you turn off I-64 there's a Micky D's. Pretty sure they're open at that time. There is also a hardees or Burger King in Nashville, also on the way to the lake. Not sure on their opening time.

Simonton's Bait Store at the lake also has those delicious little Jimmy Dean sausage, egg and cheese biscuits as well as a selection of other sub-type sandwiches and burgers to choose from all of which are microwavable (yes, he's got a microwave too.  Gatorades, sodas, chips, candy, snack cakes and jerky are some of the other things he sells there.  He has good prices (lower than in town) and decent selection.  He also started carrying bass fishing gear this year.  A few of us "locals" got together to decide on the selection of baits for that lake.  I am pushing his goods a bit, but he is co-sponsoring the tournies with Fairview Sports and myself.  

Oh yeah...he also has fishing licenses.

For anyone who can't make this one, but was interested should mark October 6 on their calendar for the next one.  I am also working on a rod giveaway for the Oct. 6 tourney.  It will probably be a Wizard Dropshot or Vertical Jigging spinning rod ($140.00 value).  Also there will be some more lures for attendance prizes as well.
