Scott Ellison

Hi, this is Scott Ellison with the weekly FLW Fishing Report. Well, this is the weekend when the Big Bass Tournament comes to town. The Walmart FLW will make a stop at Kentucky Lake, and the best bass fishermen in the land will go at it for the $100,000 first place prize. 

Scott Ellison says fishing ranges from so-so to fairly good depending on what you’re trying to catch.

Colin Moore here, filling in for Scott Ellison with the FLW Weekly Fishing Report. Scott is on the road, tending to a tournament in Maryland, but wanted me to say hi for him and wish everybody good fishing.

As there hasn’t been enough rain to settle the dust, the lake is about three feet low and there’s no sign that it’s going to go up anytime soon. Still, the air temperature has moderated, the water level is staying fairly stable and the fishing has gotten a lot better for most species.

Dave Washburn says fishing is fairly good when the wind will let you get out on the lake.

Hi, I’m Dave Washburn, with the FLW Weekly Fishing Report. Depending on what you’re targeting, fishing is fairly good when the wind will let you get out on the lake. Bass, bluegill and shellcracker are the headliners, but you’ve got to cover water and make a lot of casts to do well.

Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds play Murray State's Lovett Live Onstage Concert Series Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30 in Lovett Auditorium. Beyond The Edge host Tracy Ross and Lovett Live host Matt Parker recently spoke with lead singer  Arleigh Kincheloe about growing up in the Catskills Mountains, creating music with nine musicians, and the band's very generous fanbase. 

FLW's Scott Ellison says high winds put a crimp in everybody's fishing but conditions are improving.

Scott Ellison here, with the FLW Weekly Fishing Report. You’ll have to pardon me if there are a lot of gaps in this week’s report, because the high winds that we had beginning Sunday put a crimp in everybody’s fishing. It’s supposed to be relatively calm for the next several days, however, so that should let the fishermen catch up on what they’ve been missing.

It's only been four years since singer/songwriter Joe Pug quit his day job to focus on music full time.  However, the Maryland native and Austin resident has already garnered comparisons to musicians like REM, Iron & Wine, John Prine, and Bob Dylan.  

Dave Washburn says the cold weather may have dampened fishing conditions, but didn’t stop it completely.
