    A while back an OGF mbr that I beleive had a shop or some sort of bait license was selling Skip Jack. He made a post about selling it in the Cincy area, does anyone know who this mbr was?

    Mellon, starting last season a few bait stores started selling Skips around Columbus , mostly because of the number of "pay ponds"...guess these guys FINALLY realized these blues where once wild fish and ate skipjacks naturally...duh!
    Anyhow, they charged $9-$10 a POUND...geez us man...i laughed at them each time they tried to sell me some... i always told them..if i cant get fresh skips myself...i'll always have fresh shad to fall back on.

    Good luck man, hope ya find a good supply of them without breaking the bank!!

    There is a bait shop along the Ohio river near racine that sells frozen skips for 5 bucks a pound.

    Racine is a spot that I want to hit more, I did several years ago, nice spot.

    Thanks Scott, Yeah I will laugh @ $9 per pound too, plus form what I hear they are fun to catch. I'd like to just get a few freezer bags full, but not at that price!

    Oh you've never caught them before? about a blast...get with some of those Meldhal guys when the skips'll load up a few bags, then keep on fishing for them for a freshwater tarpon..i wish we had them around here.
    The closest area around me is...ive caught a skipjack in Paint Creek(the creek, not the res.) while wading for buddy Jake caught one from the Scioto river right where we flathead fish(his uncle Dave confirmed it so i believe

    The place down by me that I often talked about on the old site is no longer in business. They sold it for $5 a pound....... Skipjack isn't very good in lakes around my area . Shad is the ticket in the lakes....... CATKING....... :)
