    Re: ky dam snagging ?

    That sure would make my day if it was. Also, are there restrictions on that side, like snagging is only permitted downstream of the new bridge?

    I snagged from the Marshall County shore long before the construction began...would love to dust off the ol' rod and get back on those spoonies this spring! Haven't caught one in years!

    Re: ky dam snagging ?

    Well please post a report. I had some really good times back in high school in April - I can remember getting out of class and then hauling butt straight to the dam from Draffenville. That was back when the limit was 15! I really miss those days!

    Shoot I remember when I got started, ol' man Bill at Bill's Bait and Tackle was my friend there for a while with as many sinkers and hooks as I was going through! Now it's closed, along with KY Dam 1 Stop (where I got my line). What local place has all the stuff now that is reasonably priced? Is Fisherman's Friend still open? They were always higher, but if that's all that's left now what choice do you have.....

    Fisherman's Friend (Ken's) is still open and has what you need. Have no idea about the snagging regs....but definitely the new bridge is open and has been for a while now.

    Basically what it sounds like it is .....

    heavy tackle - heavy line - heavy sinker on end of line - large treble hooks tied up the line from the sinker .... cast into water & make sweeping jerks with rod. Generally used to foulhook/snag Spoonbill Catfish, as they make their run up the river. Plenty of YouTube videos to be seen ... just search for them.

    See page 16 of this publication for regulations on snagging : http://fw.ky.gov/pdf/09fishguidefishingregs.pdf

    Yes, we know the bridge is open....the question is whether or not the area below it is open, as in the banks of Marshall County. Those banks have been closed up during construction.

    Did you go?

    I drove across the I-24 bridge both Sat. and Sun. nights, didn't see much of any current/gates open...but of course it was dark.
