Im new to fishing the Ohio River but Im learning fast this will be my first spring fishing it. I just started using skipjack last summer and have been killing the catfish with them. I just have a question for all that fish the Ohio River do you use skipjack all year or do you use shad at a certain time of the year. Normally I will only go out with one or the other. If you guys would could you tell me what kind of baits you use at certain times of the year I would appreciate it.

I like Bluegill best for year around. My second would be skippies and then shad. Those are the 3 main baits I use in the Ohio year around.
The Gills and the Gill heads produce real well for Flatties in the Summer and year round for me.
