Come to the annual Green Country Giggers Association fish gigging tournament at the gigging flats on Lake Eucha near Jay to witness as two-person teams rush the lake in flat boats at 9pm each night to gig fish. Gigging is an old-fashioned method of fishing that utilizes gigs, a long pole that has been tipped with a multi-pronged spear. Fishermen use these trident-like gigs to spear fish while on flat boats. The use of gigging spears reflects the area's Cherokee heritage and keeps the fishing tradition alive.
Bring the family out for this fishing event and enjoy the excitement ...
