    I'm 5-11 and have a 10 foot sit-on-top kayak (perception pescador pro). You may be at the upper limit of leg room in a 10 footer. See if you can sit in it, or at least measure.

    I don't tournament fish because I can't reliably catch LMB...but somehow I thought tournaments always require artificial baits and not live bait. Some do and some don't?

    Yes, they are called "striped bass" or "stripers" here, since they are landlocked. There are also hybrids from Striped Bass and white bass that everyone calls "Hybrids". They are in the Ohio River...

    I went there back in March one friday. I parked at the Rankin Bottom VPA. Nice place to fish but more driving from Louisville than I thought. I managed one 12 inch white bass. Locals said water was a...

    I hear about Clear Creek park in Shelbyville and I have fished the bridge on Benson Pike at Guist Creek (there is a parking area there). Taylorsville State Park has access, too.

    Good Luck!
