I do not use crickets but anglers who do and some post in this section have ordered them on Amazon or Ebay. Hopefully some of them will reply.

I order 1,000 ( about $45 delivered to my door) from a cricket farm such as Armstrong's. I get them next day and immediately freeze them in pill bottles with 50-100 crickets per bottle. When ready to fish, I grab a couple of bottles and head out. They work just as well as live ones and easily keep for at least a year. I always have crickets.

A guy in Louisville was selling them last year.See his post here.

Crickets are murder to raise. Most people give up after spending a lot trying to raise the little devils.

Side Note: You might also try the Gulp Alive Leaches. They work good on the Bluegill/Sunfish.

Side Note: Also like what wgpj does with those crickets. Good idea if you use them.
