SKIPJACKS AT MELDHAL My brother drove us up to Meldhal dam to get some Skipjacks for catfish bait. It took about 40 minutes to reachrepparttar 140163 Kentucky side ofrepparttar 140164 dam. There were a number of guys already fishing for skipjacks as we walked downrepparttar 140165 hill. Some of them were up on toprepparttar 140166 dead wall. Four or five were atrepparttar 140167 corner ofrepparttar 140168 bank and wall. It was too crowded there so we walked down torepparttar 140169 rocky area to try our luck.

The back eddy current fromrepparttar 140170 dam had that area all messed up with drift material. We tried fishing at that spot for around 30 minutes. I then noticed some ofrepparttar 140171 guys onrepparttar 140172 dead wall were leaving.. The guys inrepparttar 140173 corner area had been catching some skipjacks as I was watching them. The schools of skipjacks would come in and jump all over for about 10 to 15 minutes, then move out. Duringrepparttar 140174 lull, I moved up torepparttar 140175 top ofrepparttar 140176 dead wall. On top ofrepparttar 140177 dead wall you get a great view ofrepparttar 140178 fish moving around chasingrepparttar 140179 Shad. The water was much clearer inrepparttar 140180 corner section than down byrepparttar 140181 rocks.

Right next torepparttar 140182 dam gate wall a guy byrepparttar 140183 name of Dennis was fishing from his chair. I kept casting time after time with no hits. Dennis was catching a skipjack or 2 about every third cast wheneverrepparttar 140184 schools of fish were in that area. He gave me his catch instead of throwing them backingrepparttar 140185 river. I was amazed by repparttar 140186 size of those fish. They were averaging over 12 inches. The longer ones went 14 1/2 to 15 inches long.
