    Im going to be going to the IPL Dam around 3 o'clock this afternoon and fishing mainly for skipjacks... I may take one cat rod.. but that will be it.. I will be taking a cooler and ice also... I need skippies for my freezer.... They seem to be the main bait of choice at the moment and Bluegills I can get very easy......

    So if anyone come out... feel free to say hi.. :big_smile:

    May I ask how far south are you? I'm not that far from the Ohio River.

    I've got some shad & chums, maybe we can fish the White River on my weekdays off. I don't get very many weekend days off. I'm about 2 1/2 hrs away from Worthington & Washington. I'm near Louisville.

    Hey Lee, I was just down in Linton fishing the strip pits the other day. No luck for cats in there, but caught a few decent rock bass and some killer bluegill while I was waiting for my pole to bend.

    Maybe we can hook up for a trip on the White sometime. I've never fished the rivers here before.

    I hit the IPL around 3pm today and hooked only 6 skips and every single one broke my line... I hate the new berkley Iron Silk Line!!! its junk... Switching to braid tomm for my bait pole... might put 20 on it.. I switched to some cheap 15# test I had and its just to dang heavy and I couldnt get a bite after that...
