I spent a couple of hours splitting Cedar rounds this afternoon and came across these guys.
Cedar Bark Beetle Larvae
Not quite that many, but a bunch. They range from a 1/2 inch to about an inch. They are white, fat, and have a head like a Lamprey Eel. They literally grabbed my glove and held on.

So, here is my question. Has anybody used anything like this for bait and for what type of fish? I suspect I could collect a couple dozen in an afternoon of wood splitting and I'd hate to see them go to waste. I'm thinking a trout would probably like them, maybe Crappie or some other panfish.
