Tree hugging is good for you

The common wood scorpion (or "Southern Devil Scorpion" as people 'round here like to call it) is only about an inch long in total.  A stick to hold the body in place and a pocket knife are usually sufficient to keep you out of range of the business end, and I usually put them in the fridge for 20 or 30 minutes, to get them in a torpor first.  They must wash into the creeks and rivers a lot, because they're about the most effective bait I've found when the levels are up and the water is turbid.  Big trout will hit them, too, but they're smallie crack, apparently.
