    As a kid I use to dig up those grubs all the time and fish with them...there is not much that swims that will not hit those. I caught B***, bluegills, perch, cats(mostly Channel Cats), Drum, Crappie, and a few other species I am sure I have forgottin...use them buddy!:)

    I believe what you have there is a White Grub.

    Here is a link for info on them
    http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/turf/whitegrub.html

    They make excellent bait and are so tough that I often catch many fish on a single grub. Thier skin is like leather and fish cant just pull them off. We have a terrible problem with them here in Wichita in our turf, but make for great fishing.

    Those are those grubs that kill your lawn. Birds & fish like em.

    Yep, those are known as grub worms here also. Good bait.

    Didn't know they could infest your lawn; I've always found them under rotten logs. Great bait.

    Those make great bluegill/sunfish and crappie bait.

    If you got them infested in your lawn, theyll definitely kill the grass. One sure fire way of knowing is if you grab a handful of the grass and it comes up with little effort. I had to use some grub-ex to get rid of em once before and had to re-seed the lawn. Turned my lawn brown.:crying:

    I'd imagine any Panfish in North America would have a field day on those things.

    I have tried them for channel cats with no luck, but it was probably just me, I am not much of a fisherman:crying:
