    Is there a place to catch skipjack around Bellefountaine?

    Sorry man, the Ohio River is the closest place, unless you buy it frozen from a pay pond, many of them have it frozen, for sale.

    Looks like I will be making a trip down to KY Dam when I know they are running to stock up.

    You also mentioned Pay Ponds? Didn't think skipjack could survive in a pond. Guess I never really thought bout it.

    Thanks for the info

    Jeremy, they do not have them live, but in their bait shops for paying customers to use for bait, Most of the ones around here have frozen shad, skippies and leaches, goldfish and big chub minnows for sale.
    I agree, get them when they are running and load up on them, thats what we do.

    I am in dayton so its still over an hr to the big river so I feel your pain.
