    When I grew up in Jonesboro, people referred to Rice Slicks as little bream/perch. People used to catch them in the irrigation ditches around all the rice fields.
    To me, they are just little bream, perch, sunfish or any little fish like that. They make good bait, especially for flathead cats.

    I sure thought they were made out of something that had rice cakes in them and to me,cause ive tried them rice cakes my self and they are like eating paper in fact id rather eat paper. didnt think any fish would either unless you put something on them to give them some kind of taste. but i do know now what rice slicks are, and when somebody talks about them and calls them that i dont have to look dumb any more thank you very much

    If you want to buy them. Some bait shops carry them. In and around Little Rock you can get them at Happy Jacks at the Crystal Hill Exit on I-40.
