Second small leeches. I usually use a # 10 or 8 tru turn with a single orange bead under a slip bobber. Beats the pants off crickets, grasshoppers, worms or anything else for that matter.

But trying to catch grasshoppers and crickets is half the fun. Just like using the flashlight for crawlers. grinsmile

When I was a kid, we had relatives from Illinois come up every summer. They'd bring 1,000 crickets with them, most years they'd run out. We caught everything from bullheads to walleyes on them. Sunfish love them!
