    Have been catching some real nice fish in madison lately. Caught 6 fish the other day all in the 20 pound range. Then fished again the other day and caught 16. :big_smile: How's everyone else doing?

    Hey Kevin, I'm going this weekend. What are you catching them on, skipjack?
    Blues or flats?

    Hey Eric I've been catching them on skips and shad, but everything has been on cut bait and we've caught blues, flats and channels.

    Hey Garret! I'm catching them in the discharge sometimes and moveing around alot in different holes. As far as bait is concerned I've been getting skips at markland damn when when the water is clear. You can go right down to the rocks on the indiana side and catch them. You can also get shad in the marina down river from the ramp. Hope this helps and fill free to give me a holler anytime you have questions. My fishing partner lives in Northvernon also. Later!
