Creeks are FULL of 'em. I figured the steelies would turn on to sucker spawn patterns, but the suckers LOVED it. Then I changed to a leech pattern, and no change. No matter what I put on, that was all that would hit. I must have caught well over 25! Am I glad I switched to barbless hooks for everything. The steelies don't get a chance - the suckers hit everything in sight! One guy hooked a steelie briefly, but it took off downstream, and that was the end of that. That was all of the steelie action today!
