absolutely one of favorite ways to fish and the next few weeks are prime time for snatching "BIGS" out of bushes. problem is chick has no water in the bushes and few bushes to be found.

so...........where's the nearest place to flip some bushes in the next couple of weeks? i really dont want to drag the boat all the way back to Barkley

Dude I feel yah!! It is my absolute favorite thing to do!! Especially at kentucky lake. When that water is right we tear it up there! I usually just flip reeds here when the water is up

Go to the back ends of the bays and spot dark spots which should be big stumps. Anything that wood should work but if it's in the sun that would be the ticket. Shady spots that are too dark won't work as well.

It’s prime time on KY right now. Normandy, Tim’s, and center hill were all in the bushes last week. Priest has been over full pool for weeks and the flipping is great up the river

Rusty - I'm gonna guess the TN River gets clogged w/ floaters after a good rain, like every other river system. As things settle down those floaters often end up in the backs of creeks and main lake/river cuts or coves. I've caught some of my best fish flipping those logjams. The logjams are still there even as the water recedes. They're often one of the first places fish flock to as the water rises again.

Try running a frog over the tops of them when it warms up a bit. Just sayin' . . .

IMO, large laydowns are best for pitchin'. There's not a lot of good buckbrush around here especially below full pool. I hear Weiss Lake is packed with all types of cover and is about 1 1/2 hr drive- and it's been on fire for a couple of years. Thats were I'd like to try.
