people keep telling me to use skip jack. any one know where to get skp jack near dayton ohio
Fish the dams nearby... :wink: Toss lil 1/16th oz. jigheads with green/white 1-2 in. grubs.
i thought skipjack were a coastal fish??? guess im wrong if you can catch them in central ohio
They're in the shad family. They're also called skipjack shad, skipjack herring, etc. Not to be confused with the tuna species.
I would check to see if they are native to the area. I don't know about Ohio, but we don't have them in my neck of the woods (Iowa). If they are in Iowa, I've never seen one.......
Welcome to the BOC Nick.
Try below the dams on the Ohio river.
yea they're in ohio you can get them in anumber of places on the ohio river. i usually get mine by puttin a big trebel hook on a line by itself and well after i find them and throwin it out and reeling in as fast as possible and snaggin them it works good sometimes others its hit or miss you gotta find a big school.
Not saying you wont catch skipjack, but you are more likely to be catching mooneyes. Which look similar to a skippy, but more abundant around here anyway. I heard the mooneyes work better but i think that is a personal issue.
if anyone would be willing to sell me some skip jack could you please pm me with a price thanks
Below Cordell Hull Dam in Carthage Tennessee I caught 350 just this past Sat. Morning. They are about 3 to 5 inches in length, great size for jugging. I am also still catching some adults all were caught using Sabiki rigs.
