    Anybody fish in the Licking River? If so how strong is the current, and how much lead does it take to keep it on the bottom? Has it been producing any big ones? Thanks

    I fish the licking some below the dam towards the falls. theres some nice flatheads in there. never fished the upper licking above the lake, but i bet theres some good fish in there as well.

    same baits,just have to locate the fish,they are there and if you scout the area and locate them they can be caught
