Worm Grunting...

14 posts in this topic

Anybody ever try it? It's sort of a barbaric practice, and probably should be banned, but it looks like it really works...down in Florida anyway...

Google "worm grunting" - there's a couple of good videos to watch..

I read where worm grunting is much more effective than rain - in Florida anyway - don't know if it works up here..

Tear up some newspaper, and get it damp. Put it, (and the worms) in a stryrofoam container with a lid on it and stick it in the fridge (in a place where your wife won't find it)..

and to think we used to pick them by the gallons during a rainy night and the next aftrenoon the neigbor would use a electric rod to get them crawlers to come up.

Yeah, the grunting sounds interesting.

But if we wanted crawlers, we'd water the lawn really hard during the day and then do the colored flashlight thing after dark and we'd have all we could handle. Or we'd wait for a good rain and hit the local golf course after dark.

I know a guy that uses the electrical stakes. They work really well. You can pick your bait up in about 5 minutes. He bought his at Walmart like 10 years ago. They are no longer sold there.

So what in the heck do you have to be searching for to find a video on worm grunting if you've never heard of it before seeing the video? grin

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
