Catching Catfish on Skipjack Shad

October 2, 2017 112 No Comments

Description



I took a little trip with my daughter, Kaylee. We hit Nickajack Lake hoping to find a big one. Action was slow. Not surprising, tho, considering it was brutally hot outside. It’s been a pretty hot September. Once air and water temps cool down, the anchor bite should pick back up. Cut skipjack is my go to bait when targeting catfish. I do very well catching catfish on this bait.
