    Great to get the chance to fish with your dad. I would love that chance again. When I seen the thread topic I thought you ment Ken Lake on Peabody not Kentucky lake. The grandson talked me into going to Ken lake on Peabody a couple years ago, I bought us Peabody permits and went. We caught a couple small bluegill was all. Very expensive couple bluegill but the time spent with the grandson was worth it.
    That place was a lot bigger than I remembered when it was covered in standing timber....LOL.

    My dad and I have talked about taking a trip like this for a long time just him and I. we kept putting it off for whatever reason and always came up with an excuse. So this year I decided I just needed to go ahead and plan it. Life's getting busier and busier with a 18 month old and family of my own. I didn't want to regret it one day. We hope to bring a freeze full back!

    raised n Bullitt Co.
    4 years ago we hit the lake when the water hit the 50 degree mark and caught over 300 bass in three days. shaky heads right off the bank on the LBL side. if you're looking for a guide, give Craig Hipsher a call.

    I hope you catch so many you get tired of cleaning them.
    My dad always wanted to go to Canada fishing, never made that trip. I got the chance after he had passed and have only caught one fish in Canada a nice size Smallmouth but look at it on my wall and think about dad often and wish we could have made that trip together.

    Hope y'all have a blast! Gonna take my pops somewhere for a weekend too. For about 6 straight years we'd do 3 day trout fishing on the Hawaissee in TN. Job demands got us out of that. Think we need to get it going again.

    We took a guys trip to the Hawaissee one year. It was a fun trip, but we almost got ourselves in trouble when the water started rising and we didn't have a clue what was going on. One of our friends was way on the other side of the river when the water started rising. The water was up to his chest by the time he made it back to us. I caught more trout out of Turtletown creek then I did out of the Hawaissee though.

    They have sirens now. They didn't back in the day so I know what you're saying. Fun area. We've fished Tellico a few times as well.
