When you collect them put them in a 5 qt. ice cream bucket witha few small air holes in the top. I cut cardboard a little smaller than the bucket until it is about 3/4 full of cardboard and soak the cardboard in water until it comes apartdrain off the excess water place the cardboard in the pail and place the crawlers on top of the cardboard and they will crawl into the cardboard absorb water and eat the cardboard the sick or streached ones will stay on top discard them, and place them in the basement refrigerator next to the fishing beer and you will not forget them change cardboard when you notice a little mold starting to grow or every month or so they will be in good shape for a long time I put 10 to 12 dozen per container

Dark, we'll have to do that. Curious about who you fish with on Eliz.? I alway's head up there on the afternoon of opener to the get together at "Droopy's". They usually have a cook out and as you would say a "smartfire"!!

just don't freeze them. I like useing cardboard because they are not nearly as messy with dirt and they are very easy to get out of the cardboard lift up a paper and there's one all straight and easy to grab.

Well Terry,

You're 29 percent there.

How many hours of fishing did it take to go through 130 dozen(1,560) worms?

Being that he guides, 130 dozen seems justifiable. Figure on a good day of fishin, you could easily go thru a couple dozen, that would cut the fishin down to 60-70 days. smile.gif

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
