    i just watched a video on you tube ,about a dude catching nice big shad in a small gill net, just wandering if any body knows if thats legal for ky. the big shad he was netting was 10-12 inches nice catfish bait

    It would be a pretty expensive way to get bait, A resident commercial license is $150.00/year and most gill nets cost from around $300.00 to $400.00 depending on mesh size and depth.
