Fished the Licking twice in the past week with all the goodies... yellow bellies, bluegill, chubs, etc. I tried dead and wigglin' but to no avail. Didn't even have a good run. The river looked good and there were some big smacks on the top of the water (probably Stripes). Fished in the morning and at night. The shad are moving a little. That's all I had to report for now.
