    I was sitting here thinking about the size of some of the skips I caught last weekend, and some of you all may not know this but the current record for a skipjack is 4 LBS

    Skipjack Herring* 4 lbs. Watts Bar Reservoir Chris Vittetoe February 28, 2004 .{"taken out of the TWRA site"}


    I just wondering how many times people have caught bigger ones that didn't think nothing about the weight.

    the only hard part of checking one in is i believe that they have to be alive and they die quick

    ya, i have looked at that skipjack record in the past.

    The one i mentioned in the other thread was at least 3 pounds...in my trout days i would have called it a football. It's vacuum sealed and in the freezer.

    I guess if a record skippy was worth a million or something i might be interested in trying for a record...lol

    I think I've bested the Ky. record a couple times just never thought about it at the time. Now I am weighing my big skipjacks, I figure the way people get hammered for keeping a big fish a bait record may be the only safe way to get in the record books :big_smile:
