    I'm from Wichita and I can say I've heard of anyone using skipjack around here. I don't know much about them, so I'm not even sure if there are any around here. What I do know is that there is shad and bluegill, and you can't go wrong with either of them. I can't tell you the best places to get shad, but you'll probably just have to try a bunch of different places with your castnet. As for bluegill, they are pretty much anywhere... worms and a bobber. Try little ponds under shade trees. Little farm ponds are probably the best and quickest way to catch them that I've found, but at lakes around the docks and stuff they are always there. Good luck.
