In about a month and a half you can catch all you could possibly want near the first set of shoals from Three Rivers on the Holston And the French Broad.

Tennessee actually put a creel limit of 100 and possession limit of 200 on the skipjack this year! Since you were looking for them in numbers I figured I'd pass that along so you don't go and get yourself in trouble. Goodluck.

I am wanting about 100 to freeze and use all summer. I agree with the limit just because they have become so hard to find in East Tennessee. I use to go to Melton hill dam in april and fill a cooler in a couple of hours. The past several years 1 or 2 a day was good then last year not a one.

I hit them at Nickajack several years ago. Caught a cooler full in about an hour. Best I have ever done on them. I went to Loudon twice in the last few weeks and the flood gates were all open. I was afraid to put my boat in just too dangerous. I tried Melton Hill from the walk with no luck at all.

Someone else has already mentioned it, but give it about another month or so, and they will be stacked up from the forks of the river all the way up both the french broad and the holston. I used to catch'em till my arms were sore while up there fishing for white bass. Small chartreuse or white grubs/ roostertails or minnow on a split shot will catch all you need.
