    Where do I catch some skipjack to use as bait? What do I use to catch them?

    I think most guys use jigs or Sabiki rigs to catch Skippies. I catch them around dams and tailraces.

    Nick, if you can find a dam generating water it would help a lot. They turn on when the water starts running. You may be able to find some biting in the slackwater, but it helps a lot if there is current.
