I noticed my brother had moved closer to wall. He did finally catch a few skipjacks. I did NOT catch one fish with all my efforts of trying all different lures and rigging. In mean time Dennis just kept on pulling them in. His rig was a string of 4-5 1/8 oz. jigs with white grub tail. I did not have such a rig in my fishing bag.
My brother finally came up by us and he did catch a few skipjacks. Then we finally packed it in for day. When we got home, total was around 30 fish. I would say Dennis gave us over 20 of them. I cleaned 6 of them in to chunks for catfish bait. I only had space in my freezer for that much bait.
I did use a small package of skipjacks next morning. Caught one blue cat that weighed in at 5.4 pounds. Also had 2 very hard bait clicking runs, one got my line wrapped around a snag and lost him. The second dropped bait and just did not come back for it.
Odds are once Ohio River settles back down, my brother & I will be back at Meldahl. I will also get those rigs that Dennis had in my fishing bag when I cast my line up there again. Tight lines to all.
