    Anybody know where I can go and catch some skipjack at? Willing to drive to another state. Live north of Dallas.

    it's about all i could catch in port aransas when i went there..

    you can find them anywhere and it's a good excuse to go to the beach.

    that's quite a drive for you, but i dont know what other saltwater is close.

    if you're wanting to use it as bait, i'd probably just go with bluegill (perch). less of a drive. skipjacks put up a fight but they're not good for much except bait.

    i realized i might be thinking about something different. we call 'ladyfish' skipjacks..

    this is what i was talkin about:

    either way. i dont know if i was much help.

    but going to port a would still be cool and you could get cheaper hotel rooms since it's outside of the tourist season.
