    You guys are a little too far north to see skipjack in any numbers. Living in the KC area, I still have to go south to catch any.

    i wonder if our lack of dams in the area contributes to the difficulty in finding skipjack around here, for instance would it be easier to find some around Gavins Point?

    It's been a while, but I used to catch some in the Missouri River just north of Omaha.
