• Toolmaker turns editor, lure maker

    From tool and die maker, to fishing guide, to boat upholstery, to lure maker, to computer guru, to fishing magazine editor. That’s Chris Erwin.

    “I came from bass fishing. I started club fishing in 1971 and I didn’t think I’d ever get tired of bass fishing, but if you catch a fish 40 inches long in six inches of water and if that doesn’t thrill you, then you’re dead,” explained Chris as we enjoyed a beautiful fall morning fishing Cave Run Lake.

  • Cave Run offers good fishing and boating

    Cave Run is a beautiful, clear lake nested among the unspoiled hills and crags of the Appalachian foothills in eastern Kentucky. It has an excellent and varied fishery, and probably is best known for its big muskie.

    An Army Corps of Engineers project, Cave Run was completed in 1975. It attracts visitors from much of Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and beyond. The lake is completely surrounded by the Daniel Boone National Forest, so the rugged shoreline remains undeveloped and, for the most part, accessible to visitors.
