HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Going to be going South this year for vacation during the summer. We were thinking about Kentucky Lake, maybe somethin a little farther with some bigger ones? Tennessee would probably be the farthest we could go. We love pitching, so maybe some good pitching lakes with lots of cover and structure. Thanks for any suggestions.

will be posted on that thread as we get closer, during the trip and when

we get back.

Are you sure you want to cut it off at Tennessee? I would contact Randall about some Georgia bass. He's posted a lot of huge bass and some DDs on this site.

Take an earlie vacation and come on the road trip with us - Then youll know what we know!

i wish i could but that would be a week of school, and i just dont think i can do that. ill see, it would be sweet to be fishing with some of the great minds on here.

hmmm....ill have to talk to my dad. i just want somewhere were we have a good chance of catching something over about 5 or 6#, anything over that would be awesome. we just want to get away for awhile and catch some fish and have a good time, and if a PB is thrown in there it will only make it that much more memorable ;)

Got one little phase for you "COME TO TEXAS" we have more 6lbs than we know what to do with ;) If lake Fork or Falcon is to far, Lake Ray Roberts is one of the best kept fishing secrets in Texas and it's close to the border. Lake Texoma isn't to bad either, and as for school, why do you think it's called hookey  ;D ;D

I second that. I fished with Randall last year and caught one over 7 lbs. My son and I fished with him last week and a 6+ lb bass was caught by Randall trying to locate fish for us. If anyone can put you on a good bass it is Randall. His rates are very reasonable too.

If it's just you and your dad, why don't you save motel bills and camp in one of our campsites in Georgia.

If you like to flip you should come down to the The Lake of the Ozarks, MO. You could flip dock the whole trip and only cover a fraction of them on the lake and there are plenty of 5 and 6 pounders in there.

hmmm...what part of MO is that in? pitchin is one of our favorite techniques, so that might be a possibility.

KY lake is really a great lake / barkley right next to it connected by canal

The smallmouth fishing at kentucky has become outstanding lately if your into them ...

personal best smallmouth last early summer 6 pounds 10 ounces

to many 3-5 pounders to count last year

Green turtle bay is a great place to stay .. the condos are great .. close .. easy to hit both lakes formt he ramp at marina becuase its at canal basically ...  

i have a condo there and love it

largemouth fishing is decent bags around 20 pounds in tourneys

although i perosnal dont do very well largemouth fishing ... more than likely becuase im always targeting the smallmouth heh

I do believe Lake Guntersville in Alabama is one of the top fishing lakes in the US. This is farther than you want to go, but...

To check on the Guntersville fishing/catching go to:

http://www../bassfish/reports/alabama/

For the five fish tournaments, the total weigh is sometimes over 30 lbs. Years ago I was told there was a five fish total weight of over 50 lbs. I have not done the research to verify. I was also told John Stewart caught 2 ten pounders the same day.

In the middle of the state. Plenty of resorts there for all budgets.

One note though,

It depends on what part of the summer you're planning on coming down.

From June - mid July the fish will locate in brushpiles along side docks or on the backside of them. Pitchin and flippin to those fish is about the only way to effectively present a Brush hog or 7 1/2" worm. Once the water temps push upwards in late July on the lake thermoclines the fish move off to the main lake points or brush piles on deeper docks that have at least 20 + feet of water on the end of them. Typical patterns in late summer include C-rigging 10" worms off of main lake points, cranking them with DD-22's or fishing the deep brush piles off the dock ends with T-rigged 10" worms or cranking them with DD-22's.

were thinking strongly on Lake of the Ozarks. one of our favorite styles is pitchin/flippin. we want to be able to have a good shot at 5#s or over. any other suggestions within about 500miles of Southern Ohio? thanks guys
