Set up around 9am and used spinner baits and grubs for Bass, no luck after 2hrs. Moved to the Airator at one side of the lake and used shiners to catch 2 Catfish, one 4.5lbs and one 7lbs after 30 minutes, I was the only one there the entire day. Very quite very clean, nice park. I did see alot of Bass swimming around chasing the little fish around, lots and lots of bluegill and I think Crappie swimming everywhere...but none for me.

I like to fish the pier at the Waterfront Restaurant, in Covington Ky.. There are a few train cars from a 1950`s train derailment down there and a 10 foot telephone cable running underwater. This is a great habitat for the 11-58 pound Blues and Channel Catfish that I catch all day long. I use tuna blood-line as bait, and catch one fish every 10-15 minutes, honestly !! I catch and release all fish, the 58 pounder was caught on 25 pound test on a surf rod using a treble hook 7inches up from a 2oz. sinker. You dont want to set your rod down EVER.... I know.....hahaha

Went fishing for Crappie using small shiners. Fishing at a depth of about three feet near shoreline brush, we caught about half a dozen mid-sized Crappie. Then, wouldn't you know it, my girlfriend caught a 5lb bass. Go figure.

Water level is still low at Doe Run -- maybe because it has been a dry spring. It is easy to walk the shore for the time being. I was pitching a grub for bass and crappie and flyfishing for bluegill. Caught a couple of bass in the 1lb range and a bunch of small crappie. Only a few pretty scrawny bluegill on the flyrod. All the fish came from shady steep banks. Saw a couple of folks take bass and crappie on spinnerbaits and spinners, respectively. PS: Yo, Kentucky fishing guys... submit more fishing reports!!!!
