    I caught several large skipjack on the Green River about a week ago on a sabiki rig. I used a couple and froze all the others. I haven't had much luck with them on the Ohio though

    Skipjacks are still hitting at Newburgh dam but they are all small. Caught over a 100 today in about a hour 6-8 inch size.

    3 flatheads and 2 channels .. i left when the rain rolled in!! you ever try a cat bobber over there? i bet you would do good with some skipjack under a bobber when the bait is in there like that...

    i spent the afternoon there today and caught probably 50 skipjack and 1 channel cat.. all the skips were small except 3 that were about 12" no one else was catching anything at all so i guess i was lucky to catch what i did:smile2:
