    Try down below the pier where the little red creek hits the main river.

    And bring your castnet and get free, wild minnows and other bait.
     
  6. how far down is that? thanks for the info, my favorites are the cats.
     
  7. At Pike you will catch many more fish if you get off the pier. Sometimes it is a decenty spot but more oftne than not you can catch more fish just walking down the bank and setting up in the rocks. The area right next to the pier where the creek runs out isn't bad if the water is above 20+ feet or lower than 14 feet. I will be down there this weekend.
