    My son-in-law made a trip to Dardanell dam to catch some skips, he filled an ice chest full. Caught on crappie jigs pink heads with white curly tails, I did not get any photos of them maybe next time.

    I was able to catch a couple skips below lock 13 the other day , If we were allowed to get closer to the gates I believe we could catch alot more. Also, if the water would clear up some I believe more could be caught, real muddy right now. It wont be long until the river is back to normal I am hoping :dribble:

    I think if I was u and was on a skippy run I would go to Pickwick in Tennessee. Skips are very sporatic around here.

    Hard to figure out the skips here in Arkansas,at times you can catch a boat load other times you are wasting your time.
