Our house lot backs up to a retention pond. Through some stocking by me, and plenty of natural stocking by the damn ducks and geese, it got to be overrun with sunfish and frogs. The past couple of years, I’ve been catching bass at other lakes, bringing them home, and realeasing them in said pond. Got a large tub and an aerator to put in the back of the truck. Brought home the final 3 on Friday morning, to bring it up to the limit of bass/acre according to all I’ve read. Anyway, as I’m pouring them from bucket to tub in the parking lot, someone there asked me what I was doing so I told them. He seemed to get upset and told me what I was doing was illegal in KY. I told him if he could show me in the fishing regs, of which I had a printed copy in the truck, where that was illegal, I’d gladly whack the bass over the head and then take them home and eat them. He didn’t take to this kindly, said it wasn’t in the “normal” regs but in some other mysterious location, and proceeded into a monologue about the population of this lake not being able to support taking bass, and how he had never been able to even catch any.(Both statements I find definitively impossible). Got me thinking though. Other than non-native, or invasive species, anyone actually know that this would be illegal? I can’t find anywhere that it is, though it is illegal in some other states.
