Skipjack-herring for sale!!!!!  (Read 5666 times)

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

Sounds like a good idea, how fresh are they, are they frozen?

Catfishjack....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.

Sounds like a good idea to me for the winter time when you looking to start?

I have never used it, but I would give it a try. Lately my bait has been buffalo from fiesta. I go buy a big ol' fish for $5 to $8.

 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.
 I'm hoping to keep the price affordable. When you figure in the time to catch, ship and package them I'm really not sure exactly what my cost is going to be. One thing I am sure of is the quality skipjack-herring for catfish bait.....AWESOME!!!!
 Keep the replies and questions coming. I'll try to reply and consider all of them so we can all benefit in some way.
Thanks again,
Dennis

I'm definitely up for some.  I moved from Louisiana and it worked very well on the Red River.

 Okay guys, from all the positive feedback I've gotten I am going to go forward with this. Unfortunately due to some minor details it will be about 2 weeks before I can get the bait here. After I get it here I am going to give some to a few friends that are guides for performance evaluation.
 I have used skipjack before and after it has been frozen and noticed no difference in it's performance. I need to see how it does with shipping on dry ice as well as get shipping times down. I want to have it here as fresh as possible and make sure it's going to be a quality product before I will even consider selling it!!
Thanks to all for the input.....Dennis

Bonus: I will include one of Jered Moungers waypoints with each purchase. I AM JUST KIDDING!!!!
