    Highly prized for eating around here.A lot of fun to catch on ultra-lite and 1/64 to 1/8 oz.spinner baits.We used to fish for them with a cane pole,short line and a small piece of red flannel cloth on the hook.You would take the first one that you caught,trim out about 2 inches of the white belly with the two red fins at one end.Hook it between and slightly behind the red fins.This is what you would use the rest of the trip to catch Red fin Pike,Pickerel,War mouth and Bass.You dabbled it in the water as you walked and fished the small creeks and branches.Fried up whole,they are great eating.My family has fished for them for generations.I ate some with my son and grandson two weeks ago.peewee-williams

    They are a blast on ultralight gear. We do good with white grubs and rainbow patterned inline spinners. I kept some in a tank for a while untill my buddy caught that little flattie that I put in the tank with them. They were the same size and he ate them HOLE! But I love catching them when I'm in the woods and come across small creeks.
