Fort Loudon Fishing Report 5/25/10

I took two of my friends out for fun on 5/25/10 from 6:30 pm to 9:15 pm. We put in at Carl Cowan park. The water was stained, 79-82 degrees. It started out raining and heavy wind, but passed through by 7:00 pm.
We fished main lake points and rocky areas and caught fish scattered. We landed about 10 fish, with 3 being keepers. Two over 15 inches and one 17 1/2 inches were caught all in the same spot.  Fish were anywhere from the bank to 12 feet deep.
Lures used were Carolina rigged plastics, Texas rigged plastics, poppers and shaky heads.  We also tried crankbaits and I caught one keeper crappie, but no bass.

Fort Loudon Fishing Report 5/5/10

I took a friend out today from 9:00am to 1:30pm.  We fished the Ish Creek and Saltpeter Bluff areas.  The weather was bright and sunny, no clouds and no wind.  Water temperature was 73 F.  Clarity was stained to heavily stained. 
We started out with crankbaits and immediately caught 2 short fish.  As we fished the main channel banks, we switched to flukes, worms and jigs and caught a few more.  We ended the day with 6 on crankbaits and 5 on plastics with only one keeper.  Lately I've had trouble finding the quality fish.
After the rough conditions on Kentucky Lake this past weekend, it was nice to fish in some calm water!
For those of you running wide open down the lake, BEWARE OF LOGS!  They are everywhere from the rains and flooding.
