Thunderbugs
(Tetragoneuria spinigera)


As a kid growing up in Wisconsin I spent a lot of time fishing for bluegill. I tried a lot of other live baits and tackle and there is nothing that works like a live thunderbug. If you want to start catching more bluegill, start using thunderbugs. My favorite time of year for bluegill fishing is in the spring time when the lilacs are in bloom and the bluegills are on their spawning beds. If you wear polarized sunglasses you can actually sight fish them. I can only say they absolutely cannot resist thunderbugs. This fascinating bug comes from dragonflies. A dragonfly is a flying insect 2-4 inches long that comes in a variety of colors. Dragonflies have an elongated abdomen, 6 legs, 2 pairs of wings and a large set of eyes that can see 360 degrees. They are usually seen around wetland marshes, ponds and lakes because this is were they were born. It all starts when a female dragonfly lays eggs on aquatic plants that are in or just under the surface of the water. Once the eggs hatch in the water they are now considered to be nymphs, otherwise known as thunderbugs. These aquatic nymphs will now spend several months under water, eating invertebrates. Thunderbugs breathe under water by passing water thru internal gills and shooting a stream of water out their anus. When a thunderbug is ready to morph onto land, it will climb up out of the water and crawl out of its old larval skin and then fly away.
We sell and ship thunderbugs in bulk. Thunderbugs are very easy to keep alive simply by keeping them refrigerated and changing the water twice a week. We have several different quantity options to try these bugs. If you are interested in catching more fish than usual, try our thunderbugs in bulk.
