Anyone have any info on musky fishing in Clay county? I've tried Goose creek and the Kentucky river but didn't have much luck.

Some still around Red Bird. Their populations come and go due to outbreaks of VHS and other viruses. Years ago people blamed coal mining for these cycles but there was never any mining near the rivers, just a lot of 60's liberal politics.

They have been several state record muskeys caught over at Buckhorn Lake that wasn't reported over the past couple of years because they didn't want a lot of fishing pressure put on the lake. It's on the Clay/Perry line. I've caught several 10 and 15 pounders over there and there's a guide over there that showed me pictures of those two large muskeys that were caught. If I remember right one was 46 pounds and the other was 48 pounds. But no joke that's probably the best muskey waters in the state right now.

Thanks for the tips, I'll have to try the South Fork and Redbird. I've actually fished the South Fork before and had some action but never hooked any. I hear a lot about Goose Creek too but I've never had any luck with it. Buckhorn sounds good too, I didn't know it held Musky.

Laurel Lake does not have muskies. It has a lot of big walleye tho.
