    I usually get them at local grocery stores. Last year I got some really nice large ones with heads on at Pechins in Uniontown and I also saw them at the Market Basket grocery store in Johnstown. Giant Eagle in Somerset also has had them in the past as well as Roof Garden Market in Somerset.

    Can't answer for the original poster but I like the whole uncleaned ones with heads on for pike bait. It's probably all in my head but I think they work better.
