two guides were fined by the coast guard $10,000. each for not having proper lisence for guide work on the cumberland river one drift boat the other jon boat. pretty hefty fine to me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hard to make that money as a guide in a year.

Any clue who they worked for or if they were independents?

There's a lot of guides who work the river without a KY guide license, much less the coast guard captains license.

just was told by another guide i know ,we were talking about guide licence, that i had been approved for ky. guide license . he said that coast guard was crackin down. when i call the ky wildlife and fish inquiring about guide license and ask about c g captains requirement they could not tell me. boy that would be expensive way of finding out. i know several guides on the river don't who was caught.
