EXPERIMENT: LIVE Bait vs. ARTIFICIAL Lures!!! (Cicada Fishing)

THE 17 YEAR CICADAS HAVE ARRIVED... Swarming around lakes, ponds, and woods, the fish appear to be gorging themselves on these tasty morsels! I run a fishing experiment to see what's more effective at catching fish, a cicada lure or the cicada's themselves!

Cicada Lure from Amazon amzn.to/3iBDEVF

    Healthy Addiction FishingPřed měsícem

    I was using the cicada lure several weeks back, video on my channel, I fully intend on using any live insect as bait as and when I can catch one. You were using the cicada lure wrong that’s why the action was bad, best way is a slow retrieve without moving the rod just crank in enough that it’s just starts to walk, the thing is actually a bass machine
