    I'd tend to believe this particular bait will work anywhere.

    It will probably work to catch smaller fish. However, I am skeptical as to whether you can consistently catch bigger fish with skips when they are not native. JMO

    If I have them I will use them if they are legal. Especially for blues.

    The skipjack is a very oily bait fish and will attract fish from most waters. It would be my choice in most cases, especially with blues.

    i think they will work great....i have used talopia heads hear on our home lake and they are also oily. so yes i think skipjack used on a lake with no skipjack in it will work very well

    They are not native to Texoma and we have tour up the blues up to 40 lbs. on skips. A big oily piece of meat will work anywhere theres are blues.

    We have caught blues up to 40 pounds on them at Tawak. I am sure they would catch bigger fish, I just have never had enough of them to figure that out.
