    Anybody that lives fairly close to Ashland Ky boat docks,Greenup Locks & dam please read this!!!
    I'd like to get a few BOC members together at a location close to Ashland,KY possibly on the river and have a one day meet and greet.Maybe swap some fishing stuff-hooks,sinkers,line,ETC. Also,maybe get a couple grills and cook some hamburgers/hot dogs and bank-fish the river/wherever we go.If anybody wants to bring a boat,that'd be cool.I don't have one and nobody I fish with has one either.
    I'd love to get to meet some of you fine people.
    If at all possible,I'd like to try to get a date someday next month.I don't work so give me some ideas please.My birthday is April 17,not sure the day but that wouldn't be a good day.
    I'm welcoming all ideas and would love to get some interest in this.Maybe everybody throw $10 in a pot and big-fish take all with a % going to the BOC.
    Mods,if anything is out of order,PM me or change what you need.
    Thank You,
    John

    If anybody has any ideas,let me know.If we can get 10-15 people,it'll be a blast.There is some pretty good fishing there.
    Ky Jake,,,mailhiker,,,mwwham,,,riverking,,,Tea,,,fishhook,,,JW,,,DH,,,I know there's lost of OH/WV/KY members that are fairly close.
    Enough people,we could fish all day and all night till early next morning.
    There is a tackle shak pretty close that I can get you all good deals on about anything.PM me and I'll give you my phone # and talk about some of this.I can also get good bait cheap from there and shad will be no problem.
    You OH guys don't need a KY license to fish the main stem of the OH!
    Also,the shad can be caught(Big Shad) by the wall by the dam on the OH side.
    You All Let Me Know When and if any is interested in a one day fishing/fish fry/burgers/hot dogs/sodas/water.
    I'm ready soon,let me know and I'll take care of all the little details!

    John,
    I would probably make it.My boat is out of order and hope to have it fixed by mid April but also do bank fishing.Are the fish out of the river fit to eat now?
    I used to eat sauger from the river but not catfish,

    Yes,I read in the KY DNR and you can eat so much a month.Its safe unless you over-do it.I was hoping around the first weekend of April but whatever the majority goes with,I'll do it.I'm looking for a cheap project boat-10-16' jon or similar.Motor doesn't matter,I want a project I can work on.Only thing is,I have very little $ to get it.Thats why I want a project one.Get it for next to nothing.If you hear anything,let me know.
    Lets keep this going...I wanna do it really bad! I wanna meet some of my Bros!!!

    It'd be great if some of those Henderson guys would come up for some lessons! LOL!
    Nah,their probably scared...LMAO!!!

    I hope you guys realize how lucky you are to live close enough together to be able to fish together. Fishing with a group of friends is priceless in my book. I just cant think of anything id rather do. If you get together please take lots of pictures!!!

    Alright,the best 2 days I can make it are April 7th and 14th. This isn't anything special,just kind of a meet & greet and try to catch some fish.
    You all let me know and whatever gets the most votes is the day we'll do it.

    Either is good for me.

    I do have a long weekend the 7th, because Easter is the 8th.
