Here in Cincinnati we are in the depths of a full on Cicada invasion. After 17 years of lying in wait these little bastards have finally reared their ugly heads! Driving down state route 32 today I hit a group of about 100 of the little buggers and my windsheild is toast! Anyone battling these cicadas :)? I know you are Sangrun!

I love em.. Colect a bunch, break out the fly pole.. Use a floating line, add a bare hook and loucust(cicada), head to creek, and catch some big ass Carp on the fly rod....

Pain in the ass and I believe we are 2 weeks away from the peak.

Yeah they love lawnmowers too... Fire one up, and it looks like black death circling from the trees.....

We don't have any here, our outbreak was about 3 years ago... I mean, of course you allways have some, but not in droves... They do make damned fine bait.....


Find a bait shop somewere that is not in an outbreak, contact them , and see if they will buy them.. collect up a bunch and sell them...

I understand they make great bait for about two weeks and then the bass tire of them.

Sort of like having pizza every night.

I'm just a little southeast of Columbus and I haven't seen a single cicada yet! If I could get my hands on some I'd most definitely try to fit some fishing into my busy schedule! The rivers are a mess from all the rain, so my flathead fishing is limited but I do know of an awesome little pond where those cicadas would probably be great for bass.

Up to my ass in the little bastards! They are very annoying, always buzzing around smacking you in the face while outside.

My neighbor found this great toy for dealing with them at Frank's garden center. It looks like a small tennis racket, but it has 2 AA batteries and the wires are for electrocuting bugs. Quite fun to play with Cicadas. :rofl:

That sounds pretty cool! "Still waiting" on those cicadas though. Had a conversation with a couple of friends the other day and of the three of us, none has seen a single cicada yet! Still makes the news, I live in an old farmhouse out in the country, we have every other insect known to the region... :dunno:
