    Hello everyone, just getting a feel to see when/if anyone is contemplating the first skipjack run of the year. Sounds like the KY trip last year was a great sucess and I prefer to use skips when fisning for blues. I'm also greatly frustrated trying to find/net shad especially early in the year. I don't have any experience catching skipjacks but I can follow instructions and chip in for expenses. Thanks.:big_smile:

    Rogers in Liberty usually has some, a little pricey though.
