I bet you didn’t know that bream like potatoes, did you?
Well, they do. Especially if they are the “food” that keeps summer crickets plump and lively so THEY can be used as bait to CATCH the bream. This time of year, you can keep crickets for a week or longer, but you have to keep them in a warm place, keep them dry and keep them FULL!
That’s where the potatoes come in. You can put a variety of “foods” in a cricket box, but the cleanest and easiest — and longest lasting, are little chunks of fresh potato. You can even slice off the dried up part after they’ve been in the box a few days and expose fresh potato and it’s just like a new buffet for the crickets.
Of course, the means justifies the end. The taters keep the crickets alive. And the crickets are available and on call to catch a mess of bream. Any questions?
