New as well; Crickets are popular here in Oklahoma, work great on perch but have caught crappie on them. Use the brown crickets, black ones don't work so well.

No, but I wouldn't eat a glow in the dark chartreuse colored tube with a pink head either........Not sure that June bugs would be much worth the trouble of catching them and trying to keep a hook in them, though. Maybe I'm just lazy. Minnows are easier. Just go to the bait store and buy them. Then the hardest thing you have to do is keep 'em alive.

light on the front of the barn draws em in like crazy. throw a towel on th ground under the light and go shake em out in the mornin. get about 50 a night. they werk good actually. easy to hook just like a cricket. i caught one on alsmost every cast til it started rainin. they float so once the rain hit they werent seein em anymore i guess

Welcome from the great state of Mississippi. Most of my hooks are so dull they wont go through a junebug.
