Most any creek of decent size will do if it hasnt been cleaned out already. You need a 1/8 or 1/16 ounce RED rooster tail. Red is the only color that will work.Try to find some holes that have been cut off by low water. Have fun take some skeeter spray and snake boots.

Here is how we used to catch em when I was a youngun. We would cut a strip of fatback a couple of inches long, and hook one end in a #6 hook tied to the line on a cane pole about 12 feet long. We`d get in the creek and toss this out and "work' it back and forth in pockets and deep holes. When the first one was caught, we would cut the belly strip off the pike, and make sure to include the red belly fins. This would replace the fatback, which was put in your pocket, in case you lost that belly strip. You could usually catch a mess of fish this way. Give this a try and let me know how you do.

The old folks told me that they didn`t even use a hook, just a strip of flannel tied to the line, and worked as we did the fatback and belly strip. When a fish hit, it was quickly flipped out on the bank of the narrow creek.

Small line is fine. I use 6 lb. test. You need to find some small creeks. The creeks I fish are really just small holes that haven't dried up yet. Be ready for some fine eating.

Never heard of them or anyone catching them here in N.E. Georgia. Are they just in South Georgia waters??

I mostly fish around Johnson, Washington, and Emanuel counties. I think you'd probably need to go south and east of WR. I can't tell you any creeks to try, because most of the creeks I fish are on private property. I do stop at some bridges and fish the creeks as long as the property is not posted. You may be able to catch some on some WMA's like Riverbend or Beaverdam in Laurens county.
