Also try Pets Mart if there are any in the area. Local pets stores may carry them also. hmmm




Side Note: You might also try using live Night Crawlers! Easier to get. thumb

The pet stores carry them but it gets real expensive when you buy 200.

I buy 1,000 online from a cricket farm Like Armstrongs. Less then $30 delivered to my door. Takes about 2 days to get them via USPS. I immediately stick them box and all into a freezer for about an hour or so. Then I open the box and put them in used prescription bottles, about 50 or so in each bottle. Then I store them in the freezer to be used as needed. I have used crickets all my 71 years, and until 10 years ago, I thought they had to be alive when I put them on the hook. Nope. I cannot tell any difference in the bite whether dead or alive. They easily last a year frozen. Actually, I prefer them frozen as they never escape while trying to bait the hook. And, none escape when I open the shipping box. And I don't worry about trying to keep them alive between fishing trips. I like'um dead.

sounds like a plan, and at that price could be cheaper than live worms from walmart.
