Description

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.
