VICIOUS Alien Bug Catches Fish?!?! (Winter River Fishing SECRET)

I go fishing using the SCARIEST insect I’ve ever seen as bait! Gigantic pincers, and a long centipede like body, the hellgrammite looks like a monster straight out of a horror flick! Despite it’s intimidating appearance, I’ve heard that this particular creature is a sought after snack for hungry smallmouth bass. With the cold conditions and the odds stacked against me, my goal for today was to capture some of these fiendish larvae and throw them on a hook to see what I could catch!
