European Nightcrawlers

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any of you have seen or used these. I saw them on a counter at a Standard station yesterday. The guy said they do not have to be refrigerated, have a longer shelf life and are much more active. He told the guy next to me to take one out and put it in his hand and it would jump right out of his hand. Which it just about did. They are smaller - like a large worm and were $2.00 a dozen there.

Sounds interesting Phyl. You better buy some and try them out and let us know how they worked. That is if you can get them on the hook before they jump into the water. grin.gif <><Mary><>

Sure you want me to be the guinea pig! I was going to get some but did not know if we would get to go this weekend. Trouble is they are the opposite way from the lakes but I am going to have to try them. Jumpy little things!

They're probably the same worms that have been marketed under various names including, African night crawlers, Alabama or Georgia jumpers or hybred night crawlers. I used them several years back when there was a crawler shortage and the fish seemed to like them. The disadvantage was they didn't seem to be as tough as far as staying on the hook when a fish bit. They were often pulled off or broken in two before the fish got to the hook.

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
