    Thought I would post that drove by the dam yesterday at Pickwick. And they were catching skipjack from the bank. Only stood there looking for a few minutes, but everyone had one or 2 while I was there watching,.

    Also for the Ones that fish Big Baits on the Big River. We now have in stock, 10/0 & 11/0 Sickle hooks. http://www.wildwolfproducts.com/hooks.htm There half way down the page.
    Also will also be stocking a new Hook that is a cross between a circle hook and a Kahle hook. These are great looking hooks. They come in 5/0 up to 10/0 and then a Heavy Duty 10/0. They have a nice wide gap to them also. Hope to have a limited ammount of them in stock in a week to 10 days.

    You do know there bad for you? Yes fresh skipjack will cause you to not sleep. Spend time with that far off look in your eyes. Make you spend days on the water. LOL

    They'll make you get up early, skip lunch, and all sorts of bad stuff. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to give up my favorite bank spot at Pickwick; I just can't handle that many rocks any more. Hopefully, I can still make it over the short stretch of rocks to my spot below the dam. If not, I'll just have to break down and fish from the boat.
