Monster fish tosses lurer - A Kentucky lake Treasure.

I have discovered that a treasured paradise doesn’t have to be miles and miles away from your home and have palm trees, sand, with aqua blue water. It can be as near as the post office. You probably have a local outdoor paradise that you treasure. In fact, some of these beloved locations may be a paradise to only a few. It may be because of the time spent there, the wonderful memories attached, or the location of where that monster fish tossed that lurer into the brush.
The reason may not even be apparent, but it’s the warm feelings that come with the location that determines your paradise. It’s more the sense of being in the right place, at the right time. Kind of like the moment you feel the tug on the pole and realize this is big or the time you cast out while fishing with chicken livers and find that the liver has come off and attached itself to the top of your fishing buddies left ear. These places and times end up being the treasured paradise that you go to in your mind when you need a break from a rock and a hard place. Go there now, I will see you back in a minute.  One such place for me is Kentucky Lake. I have painted a map of Kentucky Lake in my old treasured map style. Click on the picture to enlarge.

Kentucky Lake is the largest man-made lake by surface area in the U.S. If you travel across the dam and look down the lake, there is a spot that you can’t see the shore. It’s hard to believe, but if you add the area of Kentucky Lake and Land between the Lakes together, it’s half the size of Delaware. Kentucky Lake is a Treasured Paradise. Remember: “Adventure outdoors and find out what’s in your woods, river, lake or bay”.
