Outdoors With Big Country – Fishing Fever

outdoors big_country2_300KENTUCKY (2/8/14) – If you have "cabin fever" like some people and you're just wanting to get out on the water to cast your first cast of the year, your time will come soon enough.

Fishing fever always hits me about the end of January and I'm thinking about all those good spots that I caught some good fish at last year.  

The time is now to get all your fishing gear cleaned up, get those reels greased and oiled up, along with organizing your tackle boxes.

Do your homework now and prepare all your gear for that first trip to the lake.  Along with the preparation of your gear, your boat, motor & trailer needs some tlc if needed.  

Check your hoses, check all anchor and ropes, go through your motor for replacement of spark plugs if needed, and always inspect your gas tank and gas lines.

Your Trolling motors and batteries need to be thoroughly inspected especially the connections of the wires to the batteries.  Corrosion is a nightmare. Just a little check may save you a lot of trouble before you launch your boat into the water.

With the 2014 Kentucky Fishing & Boating Guide out at all license sales post in retail establishments or bait shops, you can read and scan thru each page for all rules and regulations for all species of fishing and boating rules.

Fishing Regulations are listed for each area of the state.  

The FINS Program is an excellent program that the Kentucky Dept of F&W has established throughout the state for City Parks and recreational lakes, for more information on this Fish stocking schedule log onto the web site at www.fw.ky.gov.  

Or call (800) 858-1549 for more detailed information.   

Also don't forget, all statewide Fishing & Hunting License expire on Feb. 28. New license, tags, and permits will need to be purchased for the 2014 calendar year!

If you hunt and fish, I recommend that you consider purchasing the Sportsman Package License, it will save you about $30 or so!  

Peabody & LBL permits are sold separate from license.   

The website has a full line of subjects to read.     

Good luck to you and get ready for the Spring Kick Off coming soon to a Lake near you!  

Be safe and leave it better than you found it folks. Our future depends upon what we do today.
