This to shall pass. Tight lines and be safe everybody.

    Mind if I take a look at your research? 400,000 Chinese flew to United States between Jan 1 and the travel ban. I can’t imagine it peaking 3-4 months after, especially with how contagious it is. When again did we start testing? How many tests have been administered? Especially since only those with severe symptoms are being tested.

    I’ll keep my optimistic view based on reality.

    George when you decide to hit the BPS let me know, I've had my eye on that big hybrid lol. Funny we both have the same problem with the same bridge. I have to go all the way to Greenwood ( which as my kids would say is kinda sketchy) to get to the fossil beds. Look forward to reading your next adventures where ever they may be.

    I run a small excavating business in central ku, we are swamped and still working everyday. I have 1 employee that drives separately to work where we use to ride together. My distance to most people is about 20 feet now. I love Cumberland but havenít driven the 2 hours to get there for trying to follow the law. Yes Iím going crazy trying not to take off and go fish but I wonít make the trip out of respect. It really gripes my butt that people would drive out of state against the law to hit the water, I hope the start ticketing them for the main reason of the effect on the economy at the lake. If they shut down the ramps and they WILL a lot of small stores will loose what income they still have. 99% of those travelers will not do the quarantine because it doesnít suit their agenda, yes you might own property but it isnít your main one where your suppose to be. Hey the Ohio river is open and you donít have to break ky law!

    Rural Kentucky does not have the health care system to deal with a major spike in Covid-19 cases. From my experience of being sick since early march it's impossible to be tested for it unless you meet certain criteria which I guess I have not. Personally I have not been to work for weeks and might lose my job. So when I hear that people are coming in from other states and maybe infect more Kentuckians yes that bothers me.
    I get that some of you have spent your extra money here and have bought houses here. Paid taxes and deserve to call Kentucky your second home. Hell probably love it more than some of us that lived here our whole lives. But right now is not the time. Some of us are fighting for our lives and financial stability. Some of us may not be here this time next year to even talk about it.
    So regardless which side of the fence you are on with this virus just know that losing the battle with this is not an option and we can't win the war with apathy.

    Thanks and God Bless

    I thought our governor has said repeatedly that people should stay at home except for work, groceries and if they need medical attention. I've taken that to mean they don't want anybody going out to do things like fishing unless it's on their own property.

    Not exactly read the whole press release statement or whatever you wanna call it. Yeah he says be safe stay home but at the same time they encourage outdoor activities done in a responsible manner. Even in Ohio and West Virginia where they have shelter in place orders they also encourage outdoor activities I think they list hiking stuff like that. It’s common sense going to the lake I don’t need to get even close to anyone I might get gas pay at pump use some hand sanitizer. Loading and unloading I don’t need to interact. So I can’t really see why anyone would think fishing done smart isn’t ok.

    Tournament memo

    I fish tournaments but I’m not until this is over. I’m glad this is the action they are taking it eases my worry tournaments could get ramps shut down. You can follow proper social distancing going to the lake fish but it’s difficult fishing a tournament.

    I think itís about time to start easing restrictions instead of placing more strict ones in place. Boat ramps will be next while their projections and numbers prove more incorrect by the day. Itís time to start questioning some of these experts and restrictions. Thankfully AG Barr has spoken out about his concern.

    He's said go fishing, but no tournaments& don't be crossing state lines to do it. Seems pretty simple to understand to me, but some must be way simpler minded than i am because they sure can't seem to keep their *sses in their own states instead of taking a chance on bringing more of the virus here or getting sick or worse themselves & all in the name of getting drunk on the water or weighing in a fish for a few bucks that could possibly be the last one they ever weigh in. Pretty simple ain't it?
