Live Worm Insider

By: Brock Ray

While game fish probably rarely see a real worm, much less a night crawler, it is the exceptional fish that will turn its nose up at an opportunity to eat a lively, juicy worm. The secret to consistent, successful catches with live worms is having a lively bait. During the heat of summer, that often does not work out well for many anglers.

Live wormsUnless you did your own, fishing with live worms normally involves buying the worms in a tackle store. Most fishermen like the convenience, and then keep their newly purchased wigglers and night crawlers in the container they are sold in. This works well as these baits can then be plucked out of the container as they are needed. This is all fine if the angler doesn’t move around much such as when fishing in a boat. At this time of year, the best way to store container held works when you are in a boat is keep them cool in an ice chest with a little ice. This is most likely to make your worms last all day.

On the other hand, if you are roaming up and down a stream or river, and especially with wading, this is not practical. When doing such on the go fishing, transporting live worms becomes challenging. The best solution is a bait bag that is attached to your fishing vest, belt loop or whatever, and holds your live worms. Fishing worms can hang right there at your fingertips.
