17 Year Cicada Bass Fishing Pennsylvania 2019 Brood VIII Crazy Life Cycle & BEST FISH BAIT EVER!!

alright it’s 2019 it’s the year of the
17-year cicadas ear in South Western PAWest Central PA also the Northern
Panhandle West Ridgid Virginia also thesouth eastern part of Ohio they’re so
loud I can barely hear myself talk Idon’t even know it probably sounds like
static in the camera I’m here on a treethat’s just completely loaded with him
you probably see them right here on theside of the tree coming up alongside
that’s it’s amazing these creatures comeout once every 17 years last time was in
2002 I was 17 years old and the nexttime they come out would be 2036 that’s
crazywe’re gonna show you a little bit of
their life cycle and then we’re gonna gofishing with them later alright so we’re
here by this maple tree and what thesethings do is they live in the ground
near the root system of the tree so theycould be anywhere all around here the
17th year they will come up out of theground you can see a hole here some of
these have come up and you can just seethese things are littered all over now
they’ll come out this is the exoskeletonright here so this is not why there’s
nothing in this this is just anexoskeleton and then they’ll climb up
the tree as you can see there’s onethat’s already completely out and then
they will crawl out of their shell as wesee here now this one is dead in its
shell but just like this it will bestuck on there they’ll be real light
colored at first and then they will drytheir wings as this one is doing right
now and then they’ll fly to the tops ofthe trees here we got another one
crawling up herehere’s another tree and look at it those
are not leaves every single thing that’sbrown is a dead cicada a lot of these
their life cycle is only for this year alot of them don’t make it pass coming
out of their shell and they die butit is just like that all over the art
here the whole way around the base ofthe tree is just loaded with them there
the whole way around it almost stinksthere’s so many dead ones most of them
have already fell off the treeit can also see these things love to get
eaten by other animals here we can seethis one was attacked Poli by a bird
it’s just barely livingnow these things they don’t hurt you can
pick them up we look under the bottomyou can see they have these orange lines
on them some of them are black there’sseveral different species that come out
they’re all still 17-year cicadas theydon’t light they don’t sting they don’t
have pincers they don’t really hurtanything other than they’re just really
creepy looking put that one back uponthe tree and he’s gonna try to go up to
the top of the tree so when they firstcome out of their shell they’re almost
pure white and it takes them all morningthey come up out of the ground at night
they usually start coming out usually inMay but more specifically when the
ground temperature at least eight inchesunderneath the top of the ground in the
soil reaches the sixty-four degree markand that usually is the signal for them
to start coming up because if it getstoo cold we get a frost or anything it
will kill them so it’s usually about midto late May and it’ll be about six weeks
they’ll live and then they’ll be donethey won’t make it through the rest of
the summer but they will just hang onthe tree beside their exoskeleton and
their wings will start to come out andthey’ll harden the darkening color
though their bodies will turn that darkblack color and the wings will get the
orange color to them and that can happenin a day’s time then what they’ll do is
they’ll come to branches like this andthey’ll they have a little spike in the
back of them the females and they willlay every quarter inch along this twig
and that twig will eventually just hangdown like this and the leaves will die
and what happens is when the the littleones the eggs hatch they’ll fall down
almost look like little white ants goget it on the ground
it’s it’ll be there for another 17 yearsunder the ground living next to the
roots of the tree so these things arequite amazing there’s many different
brewso in different parts and sections of
the country these things come out like aget like I said this is brewed 8 what
they call breed 8 and it comes out thisyear I’m in Clarion County but this this
brood doesn’t cover a big section on themap but it’s one of the highest and
density they’ve recorded up to 1. 5million of these cicadas coming out in
one acre that’s one of the greatestthings about cicadas they are awesome
for fishing so we’re gonna go fishingwith them here later on another thing to
remember is that these are not we stillsee cicadas every year but they’re not
the same cicada those are the greencicadas I usually see them year-round to
have a real high-pitched noise and youdon’t see very many of them you see you
hear them but they’re not as plentifulbut the 17-year come out in mass mass
quantities all at one time and it’severy seventeen year there’s also a
thirteen year cicada that comes outusually in the Midwest but this is the
only area here especially in ClarionCounty where they’re only gonna come out
in one year there’s some places in thecountry where some of the broods overlap
and you could see them in multiple yearsnow we might see some next year but
those could be just late developingcicadas that just didn’t make it to come
out this year they’ll come out next yearbut there won’t be as many so this is
usually right here especially here inClarion County maybe in the eastern part
of Ohio makes the PA border and WestVirginia border they might see them in
different times because there’s anotheranother brood that overlaps with them so
it’s just really interesting get up onthe internet and research these things
are really amazing their life cycles andwhere that where they pop up every 17
years soa bag wouldn’t be the best you had maybe
a bucket but pick them right up justlike that all right
that’s enough for now we’ll see how muchhow many fast we can catch for this all
right I’m on my cousin’s pond and he’sgot some catfish and some bass trout you
never know what’ll actually catch inhere I’m just using just a regular plain
old hook a little bit on the big sidebut I think it’ll be all right nice bass
will swallow these holes pretty easytake my bag I can hear them fluttering
in there the wind we’re just gonna hookjust ever so lightly right behind the
upper scale and come back in so it’sjust like that it’s just hanging there
that way as we get this down you can seeit’s trying to fly away but it isn’t
gonna go anywhere you gotta just lightlyhooked on and now let’s see what happens
okay let’s try it again here oh so therewe go all right we can see it they’re in
the waterit looks like a bluegill just took itthey’re jumping out of the water to get
this thing come on we gotta wait for abig bass to come look and they just
stand here like they’re in a feedingfrenzy there’s a bass there’s a bass
down there oh he had it he had it’s partof it there’s a big catfish yeah that
thing just flying around with my hook myword trying to get the bass to come
after it look at how many blue gills arehere
there’s a massive catfish there to juststop bass here another one alright
there’s a giant carplook at all them bluegills there we go
it’s a big bluegill alright nicebass all right another one well we’re
just gonna throw the remaining ones inhere and see feed the fish with them it
does not take longgot one more here fish absolutely love
these things and they’re all going thereyou go go out there and kick yourself a
bunch of cicadas and you have plenty offishing bait that is if you live where
brood ate comes out again you can get onwebsites and find out the maps or where
the broods are coming up see if they’recoming up in your county whether you’re
