    I’m confused. How is this going to hurt? Hurt when you slam into that motherlover at o’dark thirty?

    How about making a PSA to make your fellow hunters aware of the current situation so they can avoid the hazard!

    Or maintain the new era
    mentality of LEO’s thinking that everyone is a criminal.

    You're normally on ignore, but I was curious.

    Try reading the article, instead of being your usual self. You might actually learn something, like the fact that the Ohio is shut down to ALL traffic from Twelve Mile Island to the dam. That means anyone from southern Indiana or Louisville will have to go downriver, past the dam, to launch; else, they can go upriver to Westport. But, the vast majority of Louisville area hunters stay around Six Mile and points down river.

    I may not have a river worthy boat, but I do know where they hunt at around here. Just like I know reading is fundamental, and comprehension of what one reads is important. You apparently failed that class, given your commentary.

    As far as the LE comment - generally speaking, we don't think everyone is a criminal. Again, generally speaking, we tend to believe the world is full of idiots. Not only does your usual juvenile behavior provide supporting evidence of that belief, but statistics would show that approximately half of all people are of below average intelligence. Running off at the mouth without reading a linked article that explains the thread title would seem to provide evidence of the half to which you belong.

    Have a safe day, as they say, and back to the ignore list.

    I fish right below where those barges are hovering over the top of all the time. Absolute death trap right now. And if those barges dump their coal on the falls it will ruin a great fishery.

    Article says 2 “may have” capsized. I don’t know how there would still be a question as to whether the barges capsized or not.

    If the barges are on the dam I'm not sure why such long section of river has be closed. Seems like major overkill. It also seems like they'd shut down a stretch below the dam too.

    Was wondering the same thing, why would you close upstream. Bowfish that area, when its clear you will see parts of barges & vehicles below the old wicketts

    I assume didn’t want unnecessary boat wake pushing those barges over the falls. It’s about a 40’ drop during most conditions.

    Yea I can see barge traffic might make a wake approaching locks but sorta far fetched. 20 fters launching from Duffys or Coxs has no bearing. Guess their concern is some hapless duck hunter might run out of gas & help push a barge over wall. Even though during summertime that area is full of boaters & that never happens.

    Not that I've heard. Just got a glimpse of it as we rode by on the way in to drop someone off. That's gonna be a lot of work. River is up high right now, flooding the great lawn. I imagine that's creating even more issues.

    Hopefully they can get the barges cleared before:

    A - they spill

    and

    B - serious cold weather gets here


    Weather dude says cold front next week, and I doubt the barges will be out by then. Maybe they can lift restrictions to no traffic from Towhead into the locks before then. Twelve Mile Island seems a bit extreme...

    I don't know that area at all, so how many miles of the river is/are closed? I sure hope the coal doesn't spill.

    Heard on the radio that any coal that spills will not harm the environment because it’s natural and inert. I think that how they described it.
