    Just wondering how you all are catching your skipjack, Rod and reel, cast net?? Im wanting to try some out, but don't have a place close by to get shad... Seems like theres a lot of skipjack in the river tho. Any help would be great!!

    Rod & reel. Crappie jigs tied in tandem, or a sabiki rig. Look for fast current, below a dam, powerhouse, or off the end of a dike.

    J Trew told you right. It's difficult to catch a skipjack in a throw net. If you do you are lucky.:lol:
