    KY Lake Run pics/video

    Went down for the run this past weekend and it turned out to be a great time. We're really looking forward to next year. I still have to edit the couple hours of GoPro video but here's what I've had time to go through right now...

    Fun run was Saturday followed by lots of coving out and watching drag boat racing.

    Thanks to SloRider for the picture of my boat running.

    Nice !!! Always cool to see other lakes and some pics of runs.

    What's the lake like? Is it developed much?

    The lake is pretty awesome. The main part of the lake is about 50 miles long and a half mile wide. The water is very clean also. The main channel is really deep. There was quite a bit of serious hardware that calls KY lake home. 39 Hustler Rockitt, 39 Cigarette Lip Ship, and lots of Fountains/Sunsations. Really laid back atmosphere and people are extremely courteous. Its developed just about perfect. Plenty of marinas/restaurants but scattered out so the scenery is abundantly green.

    The things I didn't like:
    1. Extremely shallow ramps. I almost had to have all my truck tires in the water to get my boat off the trailer.
    2. The KY part of the lake is "dry". Better grab booze in Paducah on the way down or head to the part of the lake in TN where the marinas sell drinks.
    3. While the main channel is clearly marked, the smaller buoys that mark the channels going back to the coves are hard to see and quite a few are missing. We had no problems though.
    4. Lots of guys fishing in the main channel. Everyone in the run got a few middle fingers over the weekend.

    The kids are gonna love staying at Matt's, we like going to BB, the pool bar is nice and it has great circulation so the water stays nice and clear.

    Stay in touch with your game plan for next week.

    We have enough people moving here now

    Thanks plowtown for the write up and pics!! Wonder if we passed? I was with a friend on her pontoon and 2 jet-skis around Paris Landing. That area is my home turf. Grew up on Kentucky lake and boated on it all my life.
    I still have yet to see all of it!!

    Here is a good video, not by me, that shows some of the area I run in
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqYedVYIyIk. My favorite video about boating cause it describes boating to a "T" here.

    Fat Daddies is very popular but I like Eagles Nest better.
    If you’re riding ahead of the herd, take a look back now and then to make sure it’s still there.

    It's possible that we passed. I had the white/red Baja. I was tied up with a couple 288 Sunsations and the 39 Rockitt in the Quarry Saturday afternoon/evening and was in the adjacent cove Sunday watching the drag boat races.

    We were originally planning on going to Fat Daddy's for lunch on the run but some of the bigger boats were worried about it being too shallow. We ended up going to Breakers for lunch and we were all extremely pleased with the place. They didn't have enough dock space so we all tied up in lines off the dock. The food and Rum Runners were excellent. The owner personally came around and thanked us all for choosing to eat there (he made some serious revenue that day lol).
