    Anyone know what type of fish this is? Talking to a guy in the bootheal and he said they use these for jug fishing. It's some type of small fish.

    I was raised in rice country, jus north of Stuttgart Ar. We caught slicks and they look like black perch to me. Dern good flathead bait. Usually the bayou's an rivers get a bit of a rise when the drain the rice before harvest and the flatheads go on a feeding frenzy.

    And they're called rice slicks because somehow the flooded rice fields get full of these little fish. I never tried it, but supposedly they can be netted in quantities as the rice fields are being drained.
