I was at Walmart the other night and stopped to look at the nightcrawlers.... 18 in a container, used to be 24, close to $3 just for that. No way....

Weather was good this evening so I spent only an hour from 10-11pm with a flashlight and caught these -



Need to buy my license asap!

Nice! I'm gonna have to start digging my own too, cause my normal bait buying place which sold 20 nightcrawlers for $1.50 went out of business...sad day

Walmart used to sell many dead worms, and then the 20+ for $3, but now it's 18 for almost $4. That's just crazy.

during the fall you can flush em out of their holes with black walnuts soaked in water. During the spring their numbers are crazy high! I have been crawler picking in the fall a few times with limited success and tonight was by far the most successful crawler picking trip I have made and it only lasted an hour. They were everywhere... I probably caught, and this is a rough guess, 1 worm to 15 that got away, probably more.

Total count is 71 worms, almost all full sized european night crawlers!

I'm gonna have to try that walnut trick, cause we have 3 walnut trees in the yard.

And you need to get your license and start drowning some worms for sure lol.
