    i've wanted to fish a big jig and trailer but can't put the spinner bait down.
    my guide buddy said he hasn't fished anything as productive as a colorado blade spinner at night.

    On Ky, I'd agree... I've not had the same production on Barren over the years. I fish deeper on Barren, and don't have the patience to fish a spinner bait 15-18' deep.

    Yep, we caught them shallow on Ky and Barkley as well. Especially if there was current.
     
  7. A dark colored, 1/2 oz Hoppy’s, short-arm, Colorado blade spinnerbait dressed up with an add-a-rattle, a trailer hook and a pork chunk was our go to on Kentucky Lake for night time smalljaws. Used nothing else once we got on those.

    though i havent been fishing in a while, i still got black lights, that i hung off the side of my jon boat. probably hard to find, in the modern age. still got the 6", black light florescent bulbs, that work in the electric, Coleman lantern. i might have some 12" black-light bulbs, stashed, somewhere,.. LED's are in the blue/purple spectrum, i havent seen how they react, with fishing line.
    i cant see, with head lights in this spectrum, a fishing line is different.
