    So when do you go to get the skipjack? How do you catch them. Never tried to catch them or use them for bait. How far do you have to go to get them. Do you fish for them from the bank or from a boat?

    Got to wait for the cold weather to set in. Sounds good to me when you thinking of going?

    If anyone is interested, Keep an eye out for the UNCLE SCI FI Announcement which is usually in January. It is a huge gathering of anglers at Kentucky Lake, complete with Vendors, and a huge buffet breakfast. :big_smile: Before and after the gathering, many folks will go to Ky Dam and get skipjacks there, or head down to Cumberland City, Tennessee. As others mentioned, they can also be caught at Smithland Dam. Details will be out soon enough I imagine.
