    I see where people are driving 7 to 10 hours to go to Cumberland City Tenn. just to catch skip-jacks. People are saying skip-jacks are "THE" best blue catfish bait. Is there anyplace close to Charlotte where you can catch them?

    Ted, Skip Jacks are the bait for blues in the winter time and I get mine from Tenn., but I do not go up there, someone brings them to me.

    Sign us all up , LOL!!
    Driving to Davidson County is far enough as it is for menhaden , but in the 7 - 10 hours elapsed enroute to Tenn , all of it would have been used prior to making it back.
