    hey brothers i thought this would be a good topic for every one. To share the places and tips and tricks they like to use for catching skipjacks that way when the bait starts running and the bite picks up every one will hopefully be stocked with bait and ready to catch that monster it will really help out the new guys like me to get some good tips and tricks of the bait trade

    In Columbus when the skipjack are running you can fish along the river walk from rotary park all the way to the dam using jigs or minnows.
