    Lol, good thinking! Have the marinas enforce it (massive sarcasm)! That the thing, it hasnít been enforced at all. Just another reason to give for shutting down ramps. Tournaments? Who knows of a tournament that has happened since the Cumberland tournament Bradley Roy proudly posted? I know of a few on Ky but no one can stop them, heck Les, you and I can have a tournament tomorrow. Thing is at some point this has to be looked at as overreaching. Itís pointing to one thing.

    Hope Iím wrong but if you research on this the information is out there. We may be prolonging this to where it is always a risk.
    Introducing new executive orders almost daily ainít gonna stop it either.

    Almost every major lake has a park ranger if they want to stop tournaments they just need to patrol ramps in the mornings write a few tickets and they will stop. But from what I have seen on Facebook all my friends here sound like they wonít be having tournaments so I donít see it coming to that.

    Like I said, where was the tournaments happening? Sure some cookie jar tournaments on Ky lake but those are impossible to stop. My question is are all these out of state boats here fishing tournaments? Of course not.

    The reality is that Ky may be the worst hit state in country, we have no idea. We surely have a very high death rate and testing very little. Throwing out unenforceable executive orders is nothing more than a power grab. When is it too much? Personal responsibility has to enter the equation sooner rather than later, canít keep going down this road unless we add a hammer and sickle to our flag.

Itís common sense going to the lake I donít need to get even close to anyone I might get gas pay at pump use some hand sanitizer. Loading and unloading I donít need to interact. So I canít really see why anyone would think fishing done smart isnít ok.
    Well, I was just going by this graphic of his 10 tips that he starts every press conference with. Number 1 says leave your house once a week for groceries. Otherwise, stay at home. Not saying I agree with it, just that is what he's saying.

    What's the exact wording in this executive order? The one I have seen makes exceptions for essential activities like exercising, walking etc as long as the distancing guidelines are followed. No mention of boating, fishing, ramps etc. Driving your car to groceries, pharmacies, essential activities is allowed. Is there any specific reason to not allow riding your boat for fishing as long as distancing rules are followed.
    Is it that there is a higher risk of transmission / contamination at the boat ramps? Wouldn't enforcing distancing rules at the room and having a person continuously disinfecting contact surfaces minimize this risk?

    Iím pretty sure most ramps will stay open. What you might see is some places closing at night. I think you could see park rangers and such patrol and watch ramps for gatherings but I donít see lakes closing unless itís a special situation and itís tied with a recreation area or campground. Regardless there will still be fishing opportunities on smaller places just hope it doesnít come to that.

    Michigan

    They went to no boats under power restrictions AND everyone in a boat has to be from the same address
    Ohio shut down out of state license sales because of crowding om the walleye run
    Washington has closed all hunting and fishing
    Just depends on what way the political winds are blowing
    Stay safe everyone
