Do grasshoppers & crickets make good carp bait? Never tried it. Tried all sorts of other stuff, canned corn being the very best. Gson "really-really" wants to catch decent size carp and I've got quite a grasshopper surplus in the pasture.

smile Ten years old and he's already well started his lifetime catch list.

More likely the catfish and sunfish will eat your grasshoppers first.

I've caught plenty carp on grasshoppers but every fish in the water eats them so they are not a great bait to specifically target carp.
