I can't tell you how, but I believe I saw this covered under a similar topic on this forum a while back. Try running a search on "worm probe" and see what comes up.

Just take an extension cord. cut the female end off separate the two wires and solder(sp) the ends to a couple of steel rods about three ft long. When complete, push into ground (while they are unplugged of course) and plug them in. Give them about twenty minutes to work. push them in about three to four ft apart.

Actualy all you need to do is flaten the end of a coat hanger, so it will fit into ONE side of the female end of your extention cord. make sure it fits loose enough to pull off the hanger easily. poke the hanger in the ground, then put the extention cord on then plug it in. Before you move to a different spot take the cord off the hanger first. if you have watered the lawn pryor to doing this, you will feel some tingle when pulling worms or kneeling etc.

But! "boiled" nightcrawlers, wont live as long. Easier to go out after dark, then pic em!

I think if you do as stated above you may blow fuses or breakers as that would make a short.

I had a commercial "electric worm getter" that I picked up at a garage sale a few years back...thing was probably made in the mid 50's(southbend)....paid a buck for it...anyway ...I had heard they work pretty good so I was anxious to try it out...after a rain one morning I ventured out on my lawn...got an extention cord...plugged the thing in....well I'll tell you what!...the only thing missing was the electric chair!...lol...I'm here to tell you I'm lucky I'm still here to be writing this ...lol!...(my wife witnessed the whole thing...she almost was a widow...lol!)...ever wonder why you don't see these electric worm getters on the shelves in the stores? ....I'm the reason...ha! ha!personally ...I think there a good way to commit suicide...lol!...yup I did see some night crawlers half cooked on the lawn after that...limpless things that they were...lol!...I'll get my nightcrawlers with a flashlight at night thankyou....or a couple bucks in a store...thanks jon

My grandfather used to use one of these, and it was quite safe if we all stayed on the dry cement driveway while it was plugged in.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
