bait for bait

10 posts in this topic

Every year I always forget to catch nightcrawlers.Then later when I want to catch some bullies I have to go buy them. With all the rain we are getting it is a good time to build up a nice supply. It only takes a few minutes a night to get a few dozen. You can put them in one of those crawler boxes with bedding that they sell at all the stores. They last a very long in those containers and then you don't have to spend two to three dollars an dozen each time you need bait.I hope this will refresh your memory to get bait for bait. I finally remembered this year.

good luck fishing everybody.

I am surprised I haven't seen a mass crawling around my place. I don't think I have healthy enough soil to have a healthy population, but I bet I could make a killing, so to speak, across the street at the grave yard. I have occasionally seen crawlers in the yard, but they may have been some extras I've released.

Hard to believe the DNR when they say crawlers are not native to Minnesota.

I lived with a girl whose son would take the garden hose and use it to blast a hole in the ground. He'd then let the water run for ten minutes and those suckers would strat popping up on a 90 degree sunny day. I think the key was the yard was full of them because we lived down hill from a golf course.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
