    Well this evening I wanted to go out to fish so I was thinkin'... "man I dont know if these skipjack are gonna work, hence they havent been for awhile now, so I said heck i'm gonna make some homeade doughballs so i did and topped them with a lil vanilla extract and then took an ol' piece of spam to try as well.. got good hits on it all, they stripped me so lightly that time I thought I didnt have bait on I didnt. Had fun anyway. :cool2: Goin again Sunday with some chicken liver/shrimp. Also gonna run to walmart and restock and buy me a castnet LOL.

    Thanks for the report AJ, good to mix it up a little if your goto bait is'nt working. I tried to get you some bean worm but I couldn't find any more.
