How yall catch skipjack?
first welcome to the boc , skips on small chrome spoons ,white curly tail jigs , sabki rigs , most of the time jigs are 2 to a leader you may need to check local game laws on number of hooks.
Welcome to the BOC, Larry! I'm sure that small lures or spoons will work great for skippies, but I've never tried them. Most people either use a sabiki rig or a couple of crappie jigs tied in tandem. I've seen both used side by side, and couldn't tell that one worked any better than the other. Crappie jigs are more convenient to me, so that's what I use. I've got a little plastic box with an assortment of jig sizes and colors, and curlytails and tubes of assorted colors. Don't be surprised at catching two at a time; it's not uncommon at all.
I pre-tie my own rigs using crappie jigs and a white twist tail on the end. I tie on 4 jigs per rig. Sometimes catch 3 & 4 skips. I use a heavier leader line to tie the rig with just for that reason.:cool2:
Larry Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. You have had three good answers on how to catch Skipjack.:0a22::0a25::0a25:[/B]
Be sure to read your regs carefully before making up or buying your rigs. I don't know about Kentucky, but Tennessee has some funky regs about the number of lures and size of hooks allowed. Arkansas doesn't have any such regs.
