    The gutpocket is always good, but I have luck with just about any part of a shad or skipjack except the tail. I've caught fish on the tail, but it just doesn't seem to produce as well as the other parts for me. Heads are for big fish. I much prefer fresh bait, although I do OK with frozen skipjack.

    Shad and Gill for me... that's what I use primarily. Never used skippies... don't want to drive 8 hours to get some. LOL
