Just looking for a few tips on where I can get into some fish near Lex. Also, pointers on what type of bait/tackle to use would be useful as well b/c I'm used to fishing for cold water fish.

Thanks again!

Don't know about bait and tackle but hubby bass fishes and he says the best reason for retiring to KY is that anywhere you live in Kentucky you are no more than an hour from a Lake. I would think that Rough River would be fairly close to Lexington. I will let the fishing experts advise you on bait and tackle.

My favorite: Cave Run Lake [url=http://activerain.com/blogsview/147722/kentucky-home-inspector-goes-marketing-fishing]Real Estate Blog - Kentucky Home Inspector goes Marketing (Fishing)[/url]- Guess I'm not sure how to do the link thing yet or maybe It won't let me because I'm too new to the forum.

BIG LAKES: Cave Run Lake, Cumberland Lake, Taylorsville Lake, Herrington Lake

LOTS of small lakes around. Most have restrictions on boat sizes and most also rent a small john boat for about $20.00 for four hours as do some of the larger lakes.

Beaver Lake outside Lawrenceburg, KY - about 30 minutes from Lex
Wilgreen Lake outside Richmond, KY - about 30 minutes from Lex
Guist Creek outside Shelbyville, KY - about 45 minutes from Lex
Jacobson Lake in south Lexington.

Baits are pretty standard stuff. Some work one day and others work another day. Just have to play around with them.

i hear the dix river is one of the best places for bass and catfish. directions

real scenic down there. great in the spring

and if you get real lazy you can actually fish in lexington. the one by jcobson park's always got people
