Crickets are great pannie bait. A little tough to collect in the winter but summer thru fall, if you have a local bakery get an unsliced loaf of bread, dig into one end and hollow it out. Set it out overnight and check it early in the morning. Cricketsssss!

Don't forget about pickin' yer own crawlers and keeping 'em well into the winter.
Not fish? Not an option!

We use to try and get Catalpa worms on the small side and pinch off the head and use a big stick match to turn them inside out. They have some kind of egg sack looking white things that hang off the skin. Thread onto a bluegill hook and let them dangle. Caught a lot of gils fishing them on a long glass cane pole and quill bobber.
