With this years predicted Cicada hatch what lures and flies will you be using. Two options I will be using will be two old standards the Jitterbug and the Tiny Torpedo.  I think these two topwaters will be effective imitating the struggling cicadas in the water. Lets hear what you think may be a good presentation during this hatch.

Not sure they'll be this far north, this isn't the brood that hits northern illinois. I don't think that brood is due till 2024.

With that said the torpedo sounds like  an excellent idea!

I agree with Kev. A tiny-torpedo in black or a black/orange combo would probably work well. I would darken the jitterbug lip with a black marker.  May not make a dif with smallmouth, as they are so aggressive anyway, but a big old carp may be turned away by the silver lip.
