Bass, crappie, catfish, redear and other panfish are commonly
sought after at Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.
Additionally, Land Between The Lakes features four smaller lakes
and several ponds for those looking to eliminate water.
In LBL, there are nearly two-dozen
lake access areas with
launch ramps that are free of charge. Outside LBL, across the
waters of Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, there are many marinas to
stock up on fuel, bait, ice, supplies, food and drinks and more.
Kentucky and Tennessee have reciprocal fishing license agreements
so you don't have to follow the state lines when on Kentucky Lake
between Eggners Ferry Bridge (US 68/KY 80) at the Paris Landing
Bridge (US 79).

I fish for every game species in the lake: Smallmouth Bass and Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Red Ears, Bluegills, White Bass, Stripers, Sauger, Catfish and even Yellers. The fact that this lake has such species diversity is one of it's many attributes. Something is ALWAYS biting!! I have been a full time guide on this lake for 25 years.
With 50 years of experience fishing Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, let me give you a fishing experience you'll not forget! Fish with me for crappie, bluegill, redear and catfish. My specialty is trolling for crappie with my custom-painted crankbaits and longlines. Fully licensed!

I have a captain's license with the Coast Guard and I am a licensed fishing guide with Kentucky. My boat is rated to carry
12 people, so it's not a problem to take out up to six folks at a time. My Ebbtide features high gunnels, so it's great for young kids and older adults.
