    Caught my first skipjack EVER and it was fun... I went before work with my medium action r/r and just used four curly tail white grubs all tied along my line and wham-o; got me a nice 14 incher... also caught a small bass but put him back. I was only a few hundred yards up the Licking River off of a dock that the row team uses. Definitely going to try that again.

    I also cast netted and worked my rig along the Serpentine Wall on the Ohio side but didn't catch any bait. Saw some nice 7-8 inch shad feeding on the green algae growth along the bottom of the wall.

    skipjack can be a blast to catch. That 14"er will make some fine cut bait for catfish. I Cut them in steaks like you see salmon in the grocery store and fish the head too,as one bait
