underground crawler box

5 posts in this topic

I have this fiberglass box that a fella gave me, its about 24"x 32" and 20" high, with a lid, he had bought it for keeping night crawlers in, supposedly made for this use, he said you just dig a hole and put it in the ground with the lid flush to the ground so you could mow over it if need be. fill it with worm bedding and worms, sounds like it ought to work, anyone ever used something like this?? just curious if it works b4 I dig a big hole in the yard??

I lived in a wall tent in Alaska for 3 summer's. The only way to keep meat fresh was to dig a hole and put a wooden box in it.
Two things to keep in mind. Keep the water out or your box or it will float out of the hole, and keep the Grizzle's out. I think your worm's are safe from bear's.
If you have a cool basement put your box of worms on the cement floor, they will do just fine there.

I had one that was 24 long by 18 wide and about 14" deep. It had a mesh bottom like what screen you would find in a window, so moisture could drain properly. It was buried about 12" with 2" exposed above ground. worked very well. kept the crawlers in a temp where they reproduced, always had enought worms. In the spring you had to start over because the cold will kill them

I have found the that the easiest way to keep crawlers is in the basement fridge in a 5 qt ice cream pail. the secret is keep them cool and keep the ants from them

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!

    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
