My friends caught cats last week the 7th, 9th and 11th. One day a 64qt cooler of filets and another 157lbs of eaters. So I yesterday and caught 2 small cats. So what happened nobody was catching anything that day. So it was the weather front, they are spawning (full of eggs) or just too full to eat another skip jack. Now the good news, we netted 23 lbs of skip jacks. If you want them you better get to wheeler. They were all 5-6 inches a litttle small for me but at least Ill have bait the summer. We didnt try to catch any with jigs.
