    Hey all, I'm finally gettin back on the water. My fishin buddy has taken off for a bit, so I decided to bring my dad from Wyoming to try some catfishing. Are there any hotspots where i can get some skipjack in the next few days? I thought about trying near Chetham Dam, but I have not fished the dam yet. Is there anywhere else i can try?
    :confused:

    I always go there to catch skipjack. Before you go, check this URL

    you will find the times they release water for the turbines. It is a bit slow when only one turbine is running, two or more is great. Just be careful, a man and his son drowned there about two weeks ago, that water is no joke, don't forget about the life jacket law either, it is only smart. Good Luck,
