    Sorry we're way too far north to do you any good. Jacksonville If your ever up this way fishing the spillways behind our Pactiv plant always have a nice supply of shad and chubs etc. Good luck

    There is plenty for the gettin up in Litchfield. Go to lou yaeger spillway. Plan on gettin wet though its very shallow. Yet you should get your fair share. If you want some skipjack I am looking to go to kentucky sometime in the near future and wanting to split the gas with somebody.
