    My wife and went to Big Sandy on Ky. Lake this morning. We found a good spot and caught 5 in about 5 minutes. I looked over at a boat near us said "look, there are two game warden boats checking licenses." Then my wife says "Gee, I forgot to get my new license this year."

    We threw down the poles and headed to the marina as fast as we could and got her a license. One of the TWRA boats pulled in behind us at the marina but didn't say anything. We got her license and went back out, but the fishing had slowed down by then. We stayed until about noon and ended up with 13 big ones.

    Glad you made it to get her legal before they got you.
    Were the fish shallow?
    i rigged my small boat up today for side trolling . So I can side troll, Troll crank baits, Or fish standard jig, Or Ky rig out of it. The big boat is for spider rigging and all around fun..

    Most of them were around 12' deep. The ones that had eggs were nowhere near ready to spawn. It should keep getting better during the next several weeks.

    I hope to make 2 day trip up there and fish in about 2 weeks if we can find a Wed& Thur that the wind will allow us to fish.

    I would be fishing every day for the next month if it wasn't for the wind. About 10 mph is all you can stand at Big Sandy unless you get in one of the smaller bays. You can't go by the weather reports either. They are hardly ever accurate.
