The ramp at Benson creek is a very nice ramp. Has a curtiousy dock and its pretty well lite out there. I've seen small jon boats to b.ig 28' cruisers being launched there. The main river is a big pool. Goes all the way to lawrenceburg.How is the river in that area? What would be considered a big fish? If I had a deep v boat in the river would I have to be concerned?
Don't know about that section but uphere in Madison Co. they launch pontoons deep v's lil johns etc... the MAIN THING is watch for trees in the middle of the river up here anyways...Blues have come up river as far as Frankfort for sure from what KDFWR biologists have told me so I could imagine at least some 40's in there and of coarse there are flats probably all the way from east KY to the Ohio .How is the river in that area? What would be considered a big fish? If I had a deep v boat in the river would I have to be concerned?
Thanks for all your advice. I see an old man at the Benson Ramp all the time that swears he caught a 60 pound blue about where you mentioned. I hope one day I will be lucky to catch one larger than 20 pounds. Also how do I purchase a key to the lewis ferry ramp?One more thing, I used to have a key but dont anymore, but you can get a key from buffalo trace for the ramp on lewis ferry, it cost 50 bucks a year for the key. Its a good spot to launch, the fishing isnt bad, I just never put in the time to fish it and learn it, The best part about launching there and fishing that stretch is that it is very rare to see any boats, most people wont come up that far from steel branch, I never seen any boats the few times I fished down there.
