Would like to know some good places to do fishing around Maysville Ky.
Not to sure on that side of the bank, but the aberdeen discharge is directly across the river from you, and produces some fun fishing in the winter months. I do know that alot of the bank underneath the 2 bridges that go over to maysville have some pretty good dropoffs easily within casting distance, not to mention a nice set of ice breakers right underneath the old bridge. Nice current break right there, hope I could help a little. Those spots under the bridges I mentioned are on the Ky side. Welcome to the BOC!:wink:
Is that a warm water discharge at Aberdeen ????
Yes it is
That could make for a goo place for an early skipjack and shad run..
Do you have to have Ohio licenses to fish the Ohio side ?
Yes, you have to have an Ohio fishing license to fish on the Ohio side. rollo
OHIO RIVER FISHING
An angler with a Kentucky fishing
license may fish the entire main stem of
the Ohio River from a boat, or a bordering
states bank without buying the
other states license (bordering states include
Illinois, Indiana and Ohio).
This does not apply if fishing a bordering
states embayments or tributaries,
which begin at a straight line between
opposite points where the tributary or
embayment meets the main stem of the
Anglers fishing from a bordering
states bank must follow the size and
creel limits of the state where the angler
is located. For example, a Kentucky licensed
angler can stand on the Indiana
bank and fish the main stem of the Ohio
River without an Indiana fishing license,
but must abide by Indianas size and
Reminder: No snagging for any fish
species on the Indiana side or in any Indiana
waters of the Ohio River.
thanks griz, that was news to me.. I have always been told you needed one, but that pretty much corrects everything I thought I knew... thanks...rollo
That is how it was explained to me also. Is there any difference where you put in? Can I put a boat in from a Kentucky ramp with an Ohio license and fish the Ohio?
Yes you can, makes no difference where you put in.
it does not matter where you put in
Yes, makes no difference where you put in.
oops, computer was acting up and answered twice?oooh:
So that mean that i don't need a Ohio license to fish on the ohio side.
You just need a KY licenses to fish the entire stretch of river. You must obey the laws of whatever state your fishn in.
It also states to obey whichever is more restrictive. EXAMPLE: If fishing the KY bank and your from Ohio you can't go back to Ohio with more fish than the Ohio law allows or you'll be in violation.
If you put a boat in at another state, you must obey the laws of that state, just as if you were bank fishing, etc.
Just remember , if you want to fish in any of Ohio's tribs including the discharge on Little 3 mile creek, you would need an Ohio license.
So if you were on the ohio bank at Aberdeen fishing the main stem, you would b ok, but if you casted into the discharge, could be a grey area, I know the warden has a second house on the Aberdeen point, or so it seems....:wink:
