    I know a guy that that showed me a 5 gallon bucket of skipjack the other day. :big_smile:
    He said they are very thick at Greenup Locks & dam on the Ohio side. :big_smile:
    He gave me a few but i've already used them. :crazy::eek:oooh::confused2:
    If anybody plans to go catch some,let me know and we'll meet up. I need to stock up on some as well. :0a31:
    The more info I get I'll pass it along. :big_smile: :0a26:

    I'm gonna try a sabiki rig(if not sure,search in here,lots of info) or I guess you could tie 3-6 small jigs about a foot apart. I like to clip on a 1/2 to a 1oz weight on the end for casting distance.
    Do some searches in here,lots of info from people that know a lot more than me.

    Its looking like I have to put it on hold for a bit. My back is out again so I'm not gonna push it until it gets a little bit better. Keep in touch and maybe we'll go together. I'm PM'ing you in a minute.
