Skippies?

Discussion in 'Ohio River Fishing Reports' started by fishdealer04, Feb 5, 2009.

  1. Anyone had any luck with skipjacks latley? I went down to the Aberdeen discharge this morning with a friend around 6 this morning. Besides the fact it was freezing, it was kind of nice to be out. Had no luck with skipjacks though fishing a the mouth and at the actual discharge itself. Caught some wipers that were really small. There were a lot of fishing swirling in the mouth. Ended up throwing the net and they were shad. Left with 40 shad all in the 1 pound range (big guys only can put 2 in a gallon size bag)

    Just can't seem to find any skips anywhere!
