i was sitting on the river bank the other evening and an interesting thought occured to me. i didnt have any bait when i started my fishing trip so i called my cattin buddy, kybluecat49, and asked him if he would leave me some skips in a cooler by his house. i knew he had caught some that day cause he told me. he lives right on the ohio river just a few miles from my favorite cat spot. we always help each other out like this. anyway he had about 20 or so in the cooler so i grabbed about six or so and went to the river. now i am the kind of guy who likes to put a big chunk of bait on the hook and i like to use fresh bait quite often, well the cats were biting good and i was having trouble catching skips cause i kept catching baby stripes and white bass instead. i was using three 1 and 1/2 inch curly tail grubs and i was catching a white or stripe on every hook on about every cast! the bait was getting low and i found myself thinking of making a decision," do i conserve bait use smaller pieces and catch more fish or do i keep chunking it on in hopes of landing the bad boy?" what would you do? i kept chunking it.
