I'm planing at least one trip, if not several this year to the southern tip of illinois to Cairo where the miss. and the ohio merge. I was wanting to hear from some of the brothers (and sisters) who have fished this spot, or live near. any particular hot spots, cautions, baits, times of the year, anything you have to share. I'll be fishing in my boat so bank spots are"nt so important. is there anywhere close i can catch skipjacks? I'll be bringing asst. size shad, bluegills, creek chubs, etc, etc..but, i'd love to try some skips.
