Caterpillars for Bait
Caterpillars and other like creatures are sometimes used successfully. The grub is also used but I have never found it a very taking bait. The white wood worm found in down timber is a good bait, but soft and easily pulled from the hook. The legs of a large frog, skinned, are a good bait. For still fishing, especially for catfish, liver is very good bait, but it is also soft, and very attractive to crawfish. Small balls of dough, sometimes half baked, and fresh bread worked into a paste are used for carp. The flesh of the fresh water clam or mussel is a good bait for carp and other fish. Directions for using these baits are not necessary.
