i have emailed the Ky DNR about the question, however i am curious as to if any of you know the answer. Is it legal in KY to use goldfish for bait in public waters? I used to fish with them all the time when i fished the paylake circuit. however sense my mind up to quit fishing them and to public waters more i am unsure if i can use them for bait. The second thing i am interested in is do any of you use them?
