Nope, you can't buy or sell any kind of native fish without appropriate commercial license(s), and abiding by outlined commercial regs. If there is any means of legally selling (or buying) skipjack retail... I've never heard it.

I'm not saying that there's not some occasional "exchanges" made under the table (or on the river's edge), as the case may be.... but no, I don't think you'll find them anywhere "For Sale."

If so, local game wardens would probably like to know about it.

That's one reason TFWC recently put a "limit" on skipjack. Lots of folks were coming from faraway places and loading up on them.

really depends on the size ..I have used them cut in half and I have made 4 baits out of them.. I sometimes used bait that is a pound each.. weeds out the smaller ones...LOL
