    Has anyone caught any skips below Pickwick? I have a few in freezer, but need more.

    Yelp.... I did.:cool2: But it was only half of one.:sad2: Fish had took a bite out of it. But the front half was good enough for a 10 lb Blue.

    Richard if we can't get any at Pickwick next week. How about a Friday trip to Cumberland city to catch bait? Leave about 6 am we can be fishing around 9 or 9:30 am. Fill a cooler or 2 and be back on the way home by what 2 or 3 pm?
    I will know for sure this Friday. If I am back home then.

    Richard there hard to keep off a jig. Last Thursday after we finished up catfishing. I had fun at Coffee landing throwing a jig up toward the fence up by the creek. About every cast you had one or had a hit.
    I was using a 1/4 oz leadhead with a Burkley Gulp 3" minnow on it.
