    anyone catching skippies on nickajack or chickamaga? I didn't get a chance to fish for them yesterday and wondered if they were on yet.

    I went up there for the first time a couple weekends ago..Where exactly do you catch em right up against the dam??Or can you catch em a lil further down??Cause when I went there it was shoulder to shoulder up against the dam..

    WE put in at the playground boat ramp just before the dam and took the boat right up to the dam, we would drift out and still was catching them. You can even catch them from the sidewalk area. I am going again this Sat. morning if you would like to hook up.

    I have also found that if I cast my sabiki rigs in the boils of the generation I get more of them.

    Well just got back from Cordell Hull, we faced the adverse elements and hauled in 400 of those skippies in. We tried from the bank first with no luck, so we launched my boat and was tearing em up just about 200 feet below the dam.
