Hey guys this is Dennis Cobb and I need some input. For those of you who don't know me, I have been Jered Mounger's fishing partner for the last 3 years. I am from Alabama originally and have family that lives 25 minutes from Joe Wheeler.
I have aquired the means of supplying skipjack-herring on a regular basis to this area if there is enough interest. Those of you who have used this bait know what an advantage it is to have!! I have already obtained my bait license and would like to make this awesome bait available to everyone who would be interested.
I am still trying to work out the details on bait size and shipping cost to get them here. Currently it looks like the most affordable size/quanity would be bait in the 7 to 8 inch range. At this size I could sell 12 pieces of bait for $20.00, this amount could last you the whole day and would still be considered big bait.
Like I said earlier, "I am looking for input" not currently taking orders. Please reply with suggestions/comments on size, quanities and pricing.
Thanks,
Dennis

These guys down here fish with peppermint, gummy worms,chicken feet, chiken breast , chicken lips smile... so I think the Skipjacks would go over well !

I have used it many times. It's like a shad on steroids and has lots if oil in it.

Never used it in freshwater. I'd be open to giving it a shot.

I would try it. How does it hold up if you freeze it?

Sounds like a good thing here, shad can be tough. Nobody likes to get soaking wet in the winter time throwing a net.

Thanks for the input guys!! I'm going to give it a few more days of questions and comments. If the responses continue to be positive I will get it started.
Nice meeting you T-MAC...it's fun to fish with quality people.
SSfireman- I will have to have them frozen to be shipped here. Skipjack will hold up to freezing as well as big gizzards, maybe even better. My plan is to vacuum seal each package of bait. As long as you break the vacuum before you thaw them they will hold up well.

Deerstrangler....Jered and I would both agree that using them in fresh water makes a difference. Ask T-MAC and Brother Terry about our trip to Cooper the other day. I would estimate 3 to 1 bites on skips over gizzards.
