I have a few small ponds in my area I get most of my Gills from although I do travel to Crooked Ck. Lake or Glade Run Lake sometime to catch bait! My favorite pond has been overharvested! :crazy: I have been restocking it with small Gills for future reference! :wink:

Getting bait is one of the keys to productive flathead fishing. You really have to put your dues in for bait. I spend hours before going after flatheads I hit local creeks ponds and even travel almost 20 miles away for the right bait on the youghiogheny river.Some ponds can get fished out quick if a few people are slamming gills they can get wiped out. I usally fish about 6 different ones and get som crappies too. If you are close to Mt pleasant i think there are some creeks up that way that would hold suckers and chubs. I also get bait out of some real small creeks that in two steps you could walk acroos but dont be fooled they hold good bait.

Their is a fishing bait review on the main page i would think that may be a good place to start.. but you may want to talk to an administrator, they may be able to help you better.
