    I was at the steam plant yesterday. I'd say it's at least a 90% catch per cast rate. We fished for about 2-3 hours and filled 2 coolers. (150 fish or so)

    I know this may be a stupid question but, is it possible and legal to buy skipjack? I really need some bad and am not going to be able to catch any. Is there anywhere that sells them?

    Not sure where to buy them around there. But over here (near St.Louis), they sell skipjack 2 for $5!! That's why it's worth my time to drive to TN and stock up!

    Around here they are 8 bucks a piece, or 5 for $30. Most any bait shop in Kentucky or Tennessee should have them a lot cheaper though.

    I went yesterday and slammed them until both my coolers were full with the help of a few guys that were catching them for fun. So they were in there yesterday but as we all know the can be great for days and then they seem to vanish in a second.

    Just wanted to let ya'll know that the skipjacks are biting below the Old Hickory Dam. I caught about 30 in two hours of fishing on Chartreuse twistertail jigs.
