Question Ever fished Guist Creek?

I just discovered this great forum. Heck, I just discovered the existence of wipers only a year or so ago! My first experience with wipers was on a fishing trip to Guist Creek Lake (just outside of Shelbyville, KY) on 12/28/06. I had no luck that day, but I saw a guy weigh in 2 beautiful hybrids, one 9 lbs 12 oz, the other 10 lbs 15 oz. caught on shiners trolled deep - about 20' down in about 40' of water. I decided right then I had to go after these fish! We're going out tomorrow, to try the same thing. Now, that day was unseasonably warm, and it's been considerably colder here in KY of late. It might be a little cold for them still, but what the heck, I need to work out a few kinks on the boat anyhow. Had I discovered this forum sooner, I would have posted earlier asking for suggestions, and I probably won't see them until I get back, but they'd still be welcome. Have any of you guys ever fished for hybrids at Guist Creek?

Welcome aboard, Mr. Toad. I never fished Guist Creek, but have read about it often, expecially on the lmb boards. In Indiana you can start catching wipers when the water temp is in the mid-forties. Stick to the shallower areas. You're probably out fishing today in about 20 feet of water, but I say stay shallow until the water temp warms. Try a bucktail jig in any color, as long as it is chartreuse. Good luck. Check out some of the past posts in the wiper forum; you'll find a treasure trove of information.

It's interesting: it never takes more than one wiper to convince you you'd better drop whatever it is you were doing and learn how to catch those critters. That guy weighing in a 9+ and 10+ pounder must have had a grin on his face that spread from ear to ear.
Keep Your Tip Top Up!
