Bluegill & Other Sunfish

Kentucky Lake has some big bluegill to fill your livewell with.  There are lots of bluegill in the 6 to 8 inch range and many fish bigger than 8 inches.  You will also catch plenty of smaller bluegill while fishing for the big boys, but using bigger baits will help eliminate some of the smaller fish.  The late spring and early summer is the most popular time to come load your livewell with the big girls.  In summer and fall, fishing can be tougher, but if you know how to fish deep, you can still catch a lot of fish.
