    Trout for bait..

    I see that you can use trout for bait for the big stripers in Tennessee waters of the Cumberland River, but why can't you fish with them in the Kentucky water? I have been having trouble catching skippies near the dam, would be real nice to throw on a stocker trout.

    Trout Unlimited would have a cow. They don't have that much pull in Tennessee, but someone is in their back pocket in Kentucky.

    This law actually protects the striper and hurts the trout so I'm all for it. Got to love the law of unintended consequences sometimes :-)
