Mormon Crickets are one of the best bait to use when fishing for Northern Pikeminnow, however, they are two hours away in Tri-Cities. Therefore, we set aside a whole evening to have the kids participate alongside us to go and catch them! Sign your kids up to have fun conversations and games in the car, great learning experience catching crickets, and even stop for a snack on the way home. The best part is that it is free to go!
