Top 10 Baits from Kentucky Lake

Crankbaits were the deal on Kentucky Lake during the 2019 YETI FLW College Fishing Open. Springtime on the Tennessee River impoundment usually means traditional prespawn tactics, and we saw a bunch of that during the tournament. Anglers in the top 10 relied heavily on lipless and diving crankbaits, as well as umbrella rigs, jigs and jerkbaits.  READ MORE »

Like the winning team, many others in the top 10 targeted main-lake points and rock-to-gravel transitions – and pretty much anything that served as a current break. With the wind whipping and the water being drawn down at a rapid pace, there were a couple predominant patterns that developed throughout the event. READ MORE »

Top 5 Patterns from College Open – Day 1

Blake Jackson and Trevor McKinney of McKendree University edged out 20 other bags over 20 pounds with their 23-pound, 11-ounce stringer on day one of the YETI FLW College Fishing Open. They did it primarily with mid-diving crankbaits on one special current break that held a bunch of smallmouths cycling through the area. That wasn’t necessarily a pattern that dominated for the rest of the top 5, though. Current certainly played its part, but versatility was key on day one. Here’s a look at how the rest of the top 5 teams caught their fish on Tuesday. READ MORE »

Blake Jackson and Trevor McKinney of McKendree University outpaced an incredibly productive field on day one of the YETI FLW College Fishing Open to lock up the day one lead on Kentucky Lake. The duo weighed in a bag that primarily consisted of smallmouth weighing 23 pounds, 11 ounces. They hold a two-ounce lead over Bethel University's Cole Floyd and Carter McNeil.

Top 10 Patterns from Kentucky Lake

Top 10 Patterns from Kentucky Lake

The 2018 FLW Tour event presented by Costa Sunglasses on Kentucky Lake will always be remembered as a ledge tournament – the one where Jason Lambert broke the 100-pound mark and ran away with it in record-setting fashion. The rest of the pros in the top 10 more or less competed for second place. While most of them caught their fish offshore, a few other shallow patterns resulted in Sunday paychecks. The shallow bass got tougher to catch as the tournament went on. The ledge anglers enjoyed more fresh fish coming out from the spawn each day. READ MORE »
