I prefer crickets, but I do better on red ears with worms. One of my last trips I ran out of crickets and used some preserved wax worms and they tore them up. May have to look into using those again in the future.
How small? I have some teeny ones. I've caught some, but got tired of fishing them out way way down deep in the fish's throats. I mean I don't like to tear them out of the ones I'm not keeping....Does that make sense?
