    I like the Licking river but tend to fish more in the Ohio.

    I talked to some guys Sunday that said they caught some nice cats around the mouth back up to the 12th street bridge. They did not offer exactly where they caught fish, just said they caught a bunch in the 10-20 lb range using shad and skipjack.

    I live in Cynthiana & havent fished the Licking this year. However Ive been hearing they are biting below the Falmouth dam on soft craws. A few of my friends canoed for 3 days on the the Licking above falmout & caught several channels on Jack Uglys (AKA Helgramites)
