Can anyone tell me how far north on the Mississippi that Skips are common and can be caught in numbers? Are there many around say Quincy Illinois? What would be the best time of year to catch them. I am considering a trip to catch some this month. I have looked at heading to the Paducah Ky. area but it would be a 900 mile round trip. Quincy Il. would only be 500. Thanks for the help!
