    with $4.60 fuel i dont have the extra dough to make a run for skips. I am sure that many others are in the same boat. so If any knows of distrubuter or just some good ole'boy that shipp them It would save of us some money. this may like wizzin in the wind but its gotta be cheaper than drivin to Tenn.

    They may not be exactly Skippies but I've heard nothing good about their Products/Bait!:wink::big_smile: I haven't had the pleasure of trying them out yet but am hoping to be able soon!:wink:
    Also, they are a BOC Sponsor! Win Win situation for Everybody!!!!!:wink::big_smile:

    No problem at all Bro! Shoot Keith an E-mail and he'll hook you up. He seems like a First-Class Guy, we've communicated a few times through E-mail. You can ask anyone that has conversed one way or another with him that he is an all around good guy!
    Best of Luck on getting what you need for them HOGS!!!:cool2::wink::smile2:

    Truthfully from what I've heard from people that have used their stuff was more than Happy with it, the Quality and the Prices, Everything Overall!!!:big_smile:
    I was impressed with Keith's quick response to my first E-mail and he offered me a Good Deal on their Products. Just haven't been able to order any of it yet.

    Send DeerHunter01(Staff) a PM and he can also tell you a lot more about it. I know he has used some different types of their Products and really liked the stuff!!! :big_smile:

    I can't wait to be able to at least order a couple trays of that Green Herring to try out. There are some spots close by that are supposed to have some Big Blues!!!:wink: I already know there are some Big Flatties there!:wink::big_smile:

    To answer your question yes. The bait shop in waverly missouri sells them. Last year it was 5 skips for 25$. The deal gets better the more you buy.

    Brad,
    how did you do when you made your run? how many can a guy catch in a day. I actualy was planning on putting 2 freezers in my trcuk and going after aload of them but I would have to be able to sell enough to pay for the fuel.

    I think the price in Waverly is still the same this year. I was in Burton's Bait and Tackle in Smithville the other day and he is getting 7.50/piece for them.

    Brad - Keep me in mind next year, I'd like to go over and catch them. It looks like alot of fun. Something to do when there is nothing going on in the dead of winter.
