CRICKET AND INSECT TRAP
This insect trap is so easy to make and it will produce free bait all season long. My family and I have been doing this for years. Find an areas insects are likely to visit or live around, this can be anyplace in your back yard, field or camp site. I have found an ideal place is around fence lines, next to my garage, shed, or wood pile. A post hole digger works great for this but you can also use a shovel or spade. Dig a hole about 18 inches deep about 8 to 12 inches wide, make sure the sides of you hole are straight up and down. Place a cover over the hole like a piece of old carpet, wood or anything insects will crawl under to hide, and when the do, they fall into the hole and cant climb out. Some people put a small plastic container or bucket in the bottom of the hole the same diameter as the width of the hole.
The next day you should have lots of crickets and insects for fishing bait. I would make 2 or 3 traps at the same time in different location in my yard or camp site to catch enough bate for a full day of fishing.
Remember fish eat about any insect that falls into the water, so you may want to try all the different insects you catch.
Put a little Baitstick on your hook and press on some insects
