For fun fishing, don’t skip skipjacks
Mar 12, 2013 10:00 pm
The most notable change in the TWRA’s 2013 fishing regulations is a first-ever limit on river herring, commonly known as skipjacks.
There is now a daily limit of 100 and a possession limit of 200.
The skipjack was once considered a nuisance fish by many fisherman because when a school moved in they beat game fish to lures and quickly depleted the minnow supply of bait fishermen.
In tailwaters below dams, schools of skipjacks often number in the thousands.
