Holy Mary of skipjack they are so thick at cheatham dam you can catch them by hand. went up to the dam this evening at 5pm by boat pulled up-to the wall next to the generator and tied of to a bolt on the wall . and the skipjack are so thick we was literally hitting them with the boat when we got up in the turbine water. I was using 2 white curly grubs catching the 2 at a time you don't even have to cast out your rod . I was just letting about 3 ft of line out and hitting the right next to the boat. i vacuum sealed 45 of them to put back for the summer and i got all those in under 15 or 20 Min's i was even getting picky and throwing the sized ones back that i didn't want. :tounge_out: i bet we boated well well over 200 skips this evening. all you KY and tn cat fisherman better get to cheatham dam while the getting is good and stock up ! you don't have to be in a boat you can go by road to the Dickson side and catch them from the bank too. heres a "pic" of a few that i vacuumed up. OH yeah i was at the steamplant hitting stripper this morning and the water is generating again good current in there but there was no skipjack running in there this morning or hardly any shad.
