I understand that small jigs in white and or yellow work well for catching skipjacks. I've never used skipjacks for bait but wish to start. I too live along the Ohio River and would like to know what kind of stuff you find the bait hanging around? Bridges, wind dams, lock chambers, or what? Are they often caught by cast net like shad? I don't ever remember getting one in my cast net. Thanks for any help.
