Black eyed Susans
Thanks ifish, you're the master of searching! I looked all over on google and couldn't find anything on grubs inside black eyed susan stems. Found a bunch about goldenrod galls though. Sounds like I need to find big patches of susies to get some grubs. Good luck this winter, quick strike.
Sorry, my bad. Suzies and golden rods are differing plants and grubs. 50 years ago that's all dad & I used besides minnows. Suzies always too hard to find but golden rods not so much. Personally I don't think either are worth anyone's time. The topic comes up almost every year and there's even more fine reading from the past here...
For some reason Lake-Link search doesn't always find these if you're not in the right forum but google does. Also if you Google 'black eyed susan grubs' or 'goldenrod grubs' there's a world of additional info to be had. Just trying to be helpful to the OP.
