I went to guntersville dam friday afternoon in search of skipjack. I saw one man with a five gallon bucket full but thats about it. I fished spoons and jig combos in the same spot he was fishing and caught some white bass but no skips. The man with the five gallon bucket full said he caught his early in the day, I was fishing around 5 pm. At the dam on the walk they were wearing the big drum out. They were fishing big sassy shad jig head cobo off a three way swivel with a 4 or 5 oz. bank sinker. They were using mostly big spinning outfits fishing in the boils below the turbines. I watched maybe an hour (the tackle I brought was to light for this type fishing) and saw probably 10 big drum caught. No stripers were caught.
