Kentucky Lake is one of the great bass fisheries in this country. This time of year, fish should be really starting to stack up on ledges. Sounds like water levels have dropped, so flipping bushes probably won’t play much, but you never know.
By the way, you need to get it in by tomorrow 8am central, this tournament actually starts on a Wednesday and ends on Saturday to allow travel time to Iowa next week.
The next 3 events Kentucky Lake, Mississippi River, & Lake Oneida are all vastly different fisheries, so trying to set your lineup to fit all 3 may be a bit of a challenge.
Here are a few guys that I think would be solid fantasy fishing picks that are not on my team. Kelly Jordan, Kevin Wirth, Edwin Evers & Timmy Horton. The breakdown on my team is as follows:
KVD – With a 3rd & a 1st last two June events on KY Lake, he is a lock.
Matt Herren – For the money probably on my roster until the bitter end, should have a solid finish, hopefully he does not get caught chasing shallow fish and misses the ledge bite.
Skeet Reese – To good to cut loose, should catch plenty of bass slinging Lucky Crafts on Ledges
Alton Jones– Hot hand & should have solid finishes all 3 events.
Jami Fralick– Hopefully Jami can repeat last summer’s Kentucky success both on Elite Series and Open tourney, I am hoping he can produce on the Mississippi river as well, but he is for sure gone before Oneida.
So here are my Guntersville picks, just one change from Smith Mountain:
|Angler 1||Angler 2||Angler 3||Angler 4||Angler 5|
|MKT: $24.7 (+0.2)
|MKT: $24.0 (+0.2)
|MKT: $21.8 (+0.2)
|MKT: $13.8 (+0.7)
Its not too late to join my group, prizes will be awarded at every tournament and year end.
