    Went to Alton yesterday and the skippies are there,only problem is getting out there to get them-good spots were taken and nobody was givin them up.we got there about 4.30pm and it was about 7.00 before we could get on the really good spot-a little point that goes out,you had to get in about 6 inches of water to get there and stand in the water but that is the spot.We watched 3 guys that had that spot when we got there fill some cooler's up.When they left we jumped in there and got about 10 before the sun went down and they quit.Going to try to get out there the next couple of days.

    The Skipjacks were there yesterday May 30th. There were several folks there loading them up too, just like Rock'n Blues said.

    I need help catching these things bad! Were they getting them on Sabiki rigs, or something else? I need help locating and catching these things.

    Do you catch them from the bank? Like....right off the boat ramp?

    I'll be there in a boat Saturday, and I'd love to know the secret to catching them there.
