Hey all, Man the board is slow lately. Anyway, I have been itching to get a fishing treip in since I got back home to Missouri. Where are you finding bait as of late? And really, what is the deal with the skips at Alton? Are they at the hot water discharge like we are hearing about down south? I have never had any luck finding REAL SkipJacks (only a few very small ones by accident in the cast net). Now the SkipEye's are a different story but I haven't been out in so long I don't know where to start. This is really my first attempts at fishing the river in Winter. I think I can find the Cats but where is the bait. If they are 25-30 ft deep I'm not sure my cast net has a long enough rope. LOL Muchas Gracias (probably misspelled but hey I never took Spanish).
