Re: Herrington Lake, KY
A few relatives go down every year, and I went last year. We had a floatel at the marina and talk about convenient. Dock the boat right in front of your door.
I figured we'd be fishing with shad, but the guys I was with fished with 1/4 ounce chrome, white, or black Roostertails and 5/8 ounce Shad Choppers almost exclusively. They only use artificials and they fish like they're chasing largemouth, but man, they catch a quite a bit of fish doing it. The largest last year was 5lbs, but the year before they got a 12lb fish and several in the 7-8lb range.
It's a nice area for sure.
We're going back down in April. I'm going to try some different stuff like soft plastic swim baits and such.
