this time of year grasshoppers can be deadly on catfish . yep i siad grasshoppers back in my younger days I use to catch coffee can full of grasshoppers and head to the ponds or lake and creeks even caught flatheads up on truman with them just fishin from the bank and blues and channel cats went nuts over them .. granted most where in the 1 to 10 lb range but did catch some 20s to 40 s on them as well . if the cats are around it will be very fast bites on them ... In the fall if we had current from truman dam we caught some cat daddys on them in the current .. and for smaller streams and ponds they are magic !!! several times they out produced shad when we fished with both .. so get the kids out of the house and catch ya some hoppers then take the kids fishin for some fun :big_smile::big_smile: who else has had great success with grasshoppers ????
