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.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
