I don't think you'll find them in any numbers in Kansas. Tennessee or Kentucky are probably your best bets.

Caleb you don't have to go that far or even catch them for that matter, Doug and Josh have a bunch of them in their freezers that I am sure they wouldn't mind giving away.:smile2: Doug you don't want to haul any of those over here for the tournament the fish around here just don't like skipjack.

It is sad to say Caleb, but that is the closest that I have found to catch them in any numbers to make a trip worthwhile. I know that during certain times of the year you can catch a few up around Alton and the chain of rocks but if I were going to invest my time and money I would go to KY or TN.

...and consider keeping Gup & Mocat's (Fish On Bait's Missouri reps) number handy as a backup for some of our frozen herring. I'm hearing reports of decreased bait populations all across the country, and skipjack are included.

You'd think this would be music to my ears, but it's really not. As a fisherman I hate hearing things about reduced bait availability, mostly because if there is no bait around for my target fish to feast on, then they gotta go somewhere ELSE to feed!!

Were going to KY. on the 8th. Can you make it to farmington, MO.?
From here the wife and I will drive. Yes, this include's spenting a lot of time on the road for you. You can sleep and we'll drive to kentucky and back. Starting Friday night when you get here and returning Sunday morning by 3 am to farmington . Then your on your way back Sunday, when ever your ready. Don't worry about gas money to get from Farmington to Ky. and back to Farmington as we are going anyway. We don't take allot of carry on such as food and such. No room for the thing's we can purchase on the fly. Need the room for cooler's full of skipjack to bring home ya'know. Team work gett's it done and I'm ready to go!:cool2:
