Insect Profiles

Scuds: These are fresh water shrimp and are found in most waters, be it a lake or be it a river. On a lake you'll find these down on the bottom clinging to growth or rocks so make sure to go deep. On a river same thing, fish it on the bottom or close to the bottom. Color is a big factor when fishing scuds, they range from pink to green to gray so find out what color is most prominent in your area and go with that. Scuds can be fished effectively year round.
