    Hi, I'm from the Council Bluffs, Omaha area. I haven't been able to catch Mooneyes lately or consitently, just wondering what you boys in Mizzou to get your bait? The reason I would like the Mooneyes is to use as cut bait for blues and big channels. Are Mooneyes/Skipjacks the best option or am I going about this all wrong? Thanks for any help.

    This is Sister Pat, A mooneye is a bait fish with small scales and they have yellow eyes. In my part of Missouri we don't have Skippiys so that's what we have to use.Either those or shad. Hope this helps,have a great day Brother.:big_smile:

    They're species of an entirely different order.

    By chance are they also related to that most elusive of all fish...the browneye?
