    Is it too late in the year to catch skipjack. Me and river_rat_42 has seen some near a dock we fish. I got some Sabiki rigs but is it too late in the year to use?

    Here in central Arkansas, one of the best times of the year to catch skipjack is during really cold weather at the warm water outlet at the nuclear power plant.

    If you know that they are there go for it. You have nothing to lose and a bucket of bait to gain. You can never have too much...W
