Stink bugs as bait???

I was driving through NC and I saw some advertisements for stink bugs from bait/fishing shops.
Are they used for bait down south?

Always been my impression that everything is used as bait.

Personally as a kid pond fishing I would use grasshoppers, cicadas, catepillars, and basically any other bug i can find crawling around.

A Stink Bug is a nice chunky morsel that i'm sure fish of many species would chomp down if given the chance.. I'd think that the structure of its body would make it float ok for awhile too, I dont know that it would generate as much topwater activity as say a big fat grasshopper but still, itd certainly get noticed if fish are around.

The other week here in Southern Maryland, on the news, they had a recipe for stink bugs for human consumptionů I guess if people eat them then they should be good for fishing. Besides they are all over down here.

I can't imagine eating them, we don't have too many here although we have the Asian variety showing up recently in a couple areas. I never dreamed of using them for bait as they ... smell ... lol
Although I have used "fermented" chicken liver for catfish and other foul smelling items. Ripe chicken was a favorite of mine for lobster or crab traps.

I think catching night crawlers is almost as much fun as fishing .. but that gets harder on the back year by year.

It is very difficult to talk about stink bugs and keep a civil tongue. Since returning from Virgina, I have bombed the MH 4 times with death substances for stink bugs and they keep appearing. I'm going to bomb it a few more times before it comes home from storage and our next trip.

If you do decide to buy some for bait, make sure they are dead. If a live one gets away and into your "vehicle" you will regret it.

Geez, I could have made a fortune on the ones who came along for the ride when we left West Virginia last fall.

They came to mind the other day as I had one on the windshield. I was trying to figure out if it had been there all winter as it was still too cold here. I still would think there are better baits... can't imagine buying them.


I also brought home a lizard who startled the heck out of me by crawling across my arm last November a week after coming back from the south.

Was the lizard green and white and go by the name GEICO?

That's not a lizard, right?
