    just got back from cumberland city, holy deep freeze batman. it was just a little cool when we got there this morn. 15 with north wind and some snow. fishing was tuff all day but we kept with it untill 4pm. jer and i caught about 100 all big ones 2lb average. rat and the other guys had about the same, so it was cold the bite was slow but we did get about 200. this was the first trip of many before we go to wheeler, it will be here faster than you think so we need to make plans for two more trips to ensure that we have plenty of bait.

    thanks jerry, i think we did ok. skip fishing is so much fun. they dont have the power of a big ole blue but pound for pound those little fish put up a good fight for their size.cant remember but i think jerry said that this was his first skip run, he did fine and caught alot of fish. we did run into some guys from the boc down there, always good to meet some of the guys to see on the board. i cant stress enuff about needing to make some more trips down to get some more skips for the trip, i dont cost that much if e1 goes together and helps with gas, maybe 20- 25 bucks each, which is not much for a fishing trip. even if your not going on the trip to wheeler and just want to get out for a day and do a little fishing. we should be able to get enuff to do the trip and bring some home for our own use.

    hey guys im down..

    Ive got the blazer and a deep freezer that runs off my power inverter .

    It can run 24/7 its a normal home deep freezer . When my battery drops below a cretin point the blazer will start up on its own to keep the battery charged and to keep the skips froze.

    Whens the next trip .. Ill have an extra spot .:wink:

    im just glad to see someone is catching the dang things, we haven't gotten a single good day skip fishing all year. hopefully this spring they will get a good spawn on and we can stock up. skip fishing is fun, but only when they are hitting...haha

    I'm thinking about making a run down there on Sat, the 16th. I think I'll probably leave at the crack of dawn and stay the night in Erin. Then pack up in the am and drive home.:wink:

    They were pretty deep for us, so take a small wieght and attach it so you can reel it in and work it fast, bounce it on the bottom,also dont let the little skips get air born, you'll lose um everytime

    Also you might wanna bring some kind of propane heater if you have one.. I gotta head unit if someone has a tank.. Or like Kirk said we should bring a grill and cook up some dogs and keep warm at the same time.. Real talk guys, it was cold as sheet out there in the am.. I was the first one outta the truck and 15 min later right back in there with the heater blowin:eek:oooh::wink:...lol i couldnt feel my fingertips:embarassed:...lmao

    Sounds like a great trip, albeit somewhat cold. Wish I could have joined you all but Ma Blue has wore me to out to the core. I've been in my bed at home 5 nights since Dec 13th. : ( holidays are over now though so I should have some time again. I'll be heading down for some skips on the next 2 weeks. I'll post up when I go. Anyone is welcome to join me. I can bring 3 folks an all the coolers you care to bring. I like to go down for two days though and really stock up on em if they are biting.
