Why can't you take it out?
You are supposed to follow size and creel limits for sportfish even on private property.
I.e. if you stock largemouth bass in your farm pond and then catch and keep one that’s under 12” you’d be in violation.
I saw this answered on a call in show once, I cant remember exactly what the CO said but I do remember it wasnt how I understood the rulesbook at all.
I’ll just fess up now that I’ve blown that one all to heck many times. We use to keep and filet out buckets of smaller largemouth out of certain farm ponds that were badly overloaded with stunted fish. My bad I guess.
You don't need a license on your property. I believe you do if you have a boat or wade into the stream. Just like you can fish the Ohio Rive that boarders a different state. Your Ky license will work as long as you are on the river but you can't get out on the Indiana side and fish. SO stay on the dirt you own and you don't need one.
You can fish the Indiana side of the Ohio from the bank with a KY license. Just stay on the main river, can't go up into the creeks. Been checked many times with only KY license at Falls.
I think you are correct. I'd ben told you could not get on their bank.
Wasn't this a big stink a few years ago with duck hunters?
The access part was I believe. Not the part about licensing. Seems as though there were some Frankfort folk that may have gotten into trouble over that whole ordeal. For the OP, I would say it depends on the warden that questions you at the time you are checked if you ever are checked. One fella is gonna say you need one and the other isn't. Safest play is to buy a license.
I'd be pissed period if someone checked me on my own land.
I’d say you’re not alone.
Everyone does this. They are good eating and you need to get some of them out of the pond
Got checked deer hunting on my own land yr before last. No, it didn't set well with me. But as have gotten older I choose my battles now when I can.
I had a CO check me on my land a couple of times.
I thanked him.
