Hit the river this past Wednesday night, there are thousands of skip jack busting the water on the back (Indiana side) of the island. How do you catch the jokers? I tried top water lures, crankbaits, charlie brewer sliders, wax worms and minnows. Whats a guy gotta do?
Try a Sabiki rig.
If they are big ones, I would through a Flitterbait past them and burn in back. You wont be able to reel it fast enough. They love it when the lure is going full speed.
Sabiki rig best choice. Rigs come in various sizes. smaller rig for smaller skippys. Ther way to fast so I wouldn't expect much luck with a throw net. They don't bunch up like shad. Shad darts and small spoons (castmasters) when there are larger skippys present.
