    Has anybody been having much catfishing luck at the barkley dam? I was there tonight and caught a bunch of skip jack then tried up near the dam for catfish. I had one good hook-up, but I got snagged and ended up losing the fish. I had a few decent bites after that, but failed to hook up on any of them. All in all I consider it a good night because I don't have skip jack where I am from so I was able to get a half cooler full, and I plan on going back tomorrow and trying to fill the cooler again. I am going to get an actual skip jack rig, because a guy that was helping me catch them had one and he brought in 4 with one cast a couple times. If anybody is going to be down there tomorrow, let me know and I will stop by and see how things are going.

    Great place to fish try a 3-way sacrifice sinker rig (light line on the sinker ) if you use light enough line on the sinker you might break the sinker off and still catch the fish .:wink:
