    Default Dew Worms

    I was leaving the house tonight after the rain we just got and took a step out on the lawn and it was just coated with dew worms everywhere, For some reason I went back in the house and grabbed an ice cream pale, and filled her up half way. Now I got 2 liters of worms, but dont know what the hell to do with them? This topic is stupid but what use could these worms go to? I had never seen so many worms in my life, when I went to pick up one, about 10 around it would scatter, very neat, lol. Ideas?

    Do you fish for sturgeons ? They make excellent bait.

    They are very good for soil replenishment. Throw them back on your lawn. If you want more to use fishing, water the lawn and then leave a plank on it for a nite or two. When you want to go out, flip the plank and there will be a days worth of worms just waiting for you. If you leave them in the bucket for a few days you will just have a stinking pile of dead worms doing no good at all.

    Feed them and leave them in the lawn.....They like lettuce leaves and tea/coffee grounds and finely chopped up veggie stuff..(just sprinkle on the lawn once a week)..Wait until after dark and you can catch them when they are feeding with a soft lite flashlight.......They are excellent sturgeon bait, especially early in the spring when the Fraser first starts to rise. Good for early steelies,too.......Ortho
    The "best looking" fish is the one that is released!

    Actually, yes they are a great bait for Sturgeon, Steel Head, even Coho like them. You can even use them to catch those other fantastic Sturgeon bait fish that people use .......... just remember to remove the head ........... of the fish that is .......... not the worm.

    Back in my youth in Ontario when I used worms for bait for mainly carp and catfish I would collect worms in the dark at the local golf course after a warm summer rain.

    With a flashlight and a coffee tins strapped to each leg I was a two handed worm picking bandit.

    Kept the worms alive in our root cellar on a diet of coffee grounds and bread.

    Loved those great big dewies!

    No need to put them in the egg loop. Just thread them on your hook and away you go.

    You could use the worms and head out a day on a local lake for some trout
