Gabby’s fishing fever

Fishing slowly for crappie in winter

It sure looks like winter outside, but for those anglers still looking to go fishing might want to give crappie some thought. Crappie are one of the fish that are not as bothered by the colder water. Along with smallmouth bass and trout, they will remain active and feed in colder water during most of the winter. As with any […]

Vaught’s Views

Several weeks ago Mike Pratt told me that he thought Louisville was being underestimated not only by University of Kentucky fans, but also nationally.

Gabby’s fishing fever

Fishing was great during warm spell

Before this week’s cold spell, we had been blessed of late with milder weather that kept largemouth bass and crappie active and feeding. I have talked to several fishermen who had good bass trips in Kentucky and Tennessee. On Cherokee Lake in Tennessee, the bass were still active on top-water baits, but the weather turning cold will make the fish […]
