What are the best ways to catch skipjacks this time of year? I live in the Nashville area and haven't had any luck. Are certain times of the year better than others? Thanks guys

when you can find them, a fast, jerky retrieve, almost like you're trying to keep it away from them, is effective. they have all but disappeared around here.
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

Anything small and flashy.... Maribou jigs, rooster tails, crappie magnets, small crankbaits, etc. sometimes you have to fish shallow, deep, fast and slow to find them. Sometimes they are right near the top and sometimes you gotta let the bait sink. Twitching and jigging and fast reeling work pretty well. They are also good at throwing the hook. I have caught them below dams in slack water and also during generation and/or spilling. Sometimes I have trouble finding any, but when you find them, there are many in a school. A lot of guys use sabiki rigs or other rigs with multiple jigs on one line. Good luck.
Haven't been this excited about deer season
