    Anybody know of any areas in they Wyboo Creek or Potato Creek area where I can catch a lot of white perch (or other bait fish) easily to use for bait? I would prefer a place where I can catch them with a cast net, but if I can catch a good many with rod and reel that would be okay too. We catch some pretty much everywhere we go, just not that many.

    We float the canal and catch them ,cast at the bank with a small pinch of worm and use no weight. Let it sink and reel it back real slow, catch bream and white bass.

    I know you can catch a lot in the canal, but I don't want to travel that far. We stay at a house not far from Bob Cooper. We usually just stay and fish in that area. If we decided to go to Moultrie we would definitely stop at the canal to catch some perch for bait.
