How do you get them? When using shad for bait, I use a cast net. But I never catch skipjacks in the net that I can remember. And while watching one of thos $5 closeout VHS tapes from In-Fisherman, "A Day On The River", they were using 5 to 9 inch bullheads for bait. Very lively little rascles but where the heck would you come by them?? Fishing for bait like this with hook and line would take a month of Sundays wouldn't it?? Help out the dummy here boys. Thanks for your time.
