    Curious if anyone has been behind the hydros in louisville and know if any skipjack are still back there? I had a really hard time netting shad last weekend.

    I have not been there, but it is typically a good time to catch them. Good luck

    well at this point bait is going to dictate where i fish since i have no frozen, so with last weeks shad problem for me south i may have to move north and fish around the hydros if i can get bait up there.

    I typically net around the output at mill creek, is there anything i should look for specifically on the salt to net around?

    Amen to that tossed my net out in one cast last week and filled my bucket up.Right now they are frozen in the fridge ready to be bait fished.
