I hope so.Anyone else heard the rumor that out-of-staters coming in and taking loads of skipjack will soon be considered commercial fishing? This is only a rumor but this makes twice in the past month I've heard this.

Probably TWRA is who you need to talk to. But if you call them, it's possible it could be a wild goose chase, getting put on hold or disconnected, and if you're lucky enough to talk to a real person expect a lot of hum-hawing. I tried to contact TWRA by email for 2 simple questions--one was the use of sabiki rigs and the other was how many creek chubs we are allowed to possess in my county. Never got a reply at all. But I did happen to see a game warden at the post office near the courthouse, ran him down and he finally answered my questions.Anyone know who we need to contact to voice our opinion to not allow it. I think if enough people complain thats what will not get it passed. It simply take enough people complaining.
I hope so too..I have been having a hard time catching skips..Went last Thursday and caught one, and every time I hear people say they caught them here or there and I go I come out empty..Not saying people are lying but it seems I'm always a day late..By now my freezer would be full and so far I've invested quite a few hours fishing for them and only have 10 skips to show for it..That is pathetic..They have to be going somewhere...I know I'm not losing my mind..If people are gonna get all upset about killing and taking our trophy fish to pay ponds and such they should be equally upset about doing the same to the bait, cause just as the trophy fish disappear so does the bait..
Haven't been to Cordell....Yet...I work in Nashville so I usually stop at Priest or Old Hick after work..I may go down to Cordell this weekend and try..I heard that ya'll were catching them there..I was on vacation last weekend so I didn't get to go..Went to Shutes last Wednesday cause I sometimes can catch them there under the bridge but only managed to catch one then my buddy at work tells me yesterday he caught about 20 there Saturday in about an hour..Hopefully I'll get out this weekend to try again but I'll be working on my boat too so not sure if I'll have time..Where did you go? I took Cattracker below Cordell Hull a couple of weeks ago and we wore them out right up against the wall. We cought 0ver 60 in less than three hours. I caught 60 oe better the week before that.
Right down the road, bout a 10-15 minute ride if that..Les be coming to Old Hickory this sunday shutes branch is next to Cedar isn't it ? How long of a drive ?
I will be helpin the economy this weekend by camping @ Hickory and buying groceries . I will only need a jack or 2 cause I will be bank fishing won't be dragging the boat .How is the fishing beneath Old Hickory dam ?I really do not have a problem with out of state folks comming here for bait, just look at it this way, if we did not have them here we would be going to thier state to harvest bait....
You have to remember this, how many eggs do one single skipjack produce and how many that are hatched survive of that one skipjack. Then multiply that by the thousands! When they do come here they are supporting our economy buy shopping, eating and staying in hotels.
