    Any of you guys use sibiki rigs in the muskingum or scioto for gills or white bass or anything?

    Never used a sabiki rig in the Muskingum. I usually throw small spinners and tubes etc. on the Muskingum.. I only know of a couple places that I have ever caught gills from the Muskingum also, and they have been just a few here and there. I get most of my baits wading small creeks and streams mostly, and from ponds and lakes. Not saying it wouldn't work. If you find a pattern let me know. :wink: rollo

    A couple places I have found them are around rock along the banks in little slack water areas. The ones I have caught have been right on the banks. I have caught some dandy crappie in the Muskingum though, if you are interested in catching them I can tell you some good spots, you will catch some smaller ones also.. rollo

    I get most of my gills out of the canal here in Zanesville.

    Usually just walk the bank for them with my ultra light. Hook no weight and a small piece of worm. As far as structure, I look for wood cover or just fish around the rocks in the water.

    I've caught a few flatheads with crappies the size of your hand.
