With all the talk about using skipjack for bait I am wondering, how do you rig for catching them?
either multiple jigs, spoons, etc or a sabicki rig work well.
I have the most luck with just 2 or 3 plain white curly tail jigs tie on a leader.
I always tied my own until I tried the sabiki rigs. I like the convenience of the pre-tied rigs. The other day I made a trip to Linton and caught skipjacks on every cast. Even had my mother-in-law and father-in-law catching them. I kept a few for the freezer and let the rest go. Someone left a pile of 50 on the bank. What a waste. I threw them in the lake and baited the spot for a return trip soon. Or at the very least fatten em up for a future PB !:wink:
I use the white twirly tail grubs tied on a leader, usually about 3 or 4, but I gotta say I have had better luck on Sabiki rigs, it just sucks every time it breaks off because there goes another 5 bucks...:angry:
I got my sabikis from cabelas for about 2-3 dollars each
I buy heavy Sabiki rigs on line. I tie on a big enough swivel to keep from reeling it up into the tip of the rod. The rig that I like has 35 lb main line and 17 lb drop lines. I use a 3/8 oz. jig with a white curly tail grub on the end. Dave
