    Chris, grasshoppers is kind of a running joke, a old man, was telling some stories about grasshoppers, when someone, ask him what he caught the fish on he would allways say grassshoppers, regardless, what time of year.:big_smile:
    Yes they are good bait at certain times, cats ,bas perch and gar will hit them always hear the yellow ones, don't know if color makes a difference.

    Ya did good there Jim, you da man for finding em... I've been using those asian grasshoppers that just fly into your boat, they make a pretty fair bait at that :wink: ... how deep are ya finding them? With the water dropping here we're finding them from around 35 to 45 feet deep... I know they have dropped Truman and was wondering if that moved em deep there... Congrats buddy on the awesome night on the water. :big_smile:

    Last sat,8/2/ 30 feet, this sat. 1 to 3 feet, they had chased some shade, up a running branch, about 5' wide and were feeding heavy on 2 to 3 inch shad.
    were acting like white bass.
    still think, some are holding, in 20 to 30' of water.
