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

    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮
    • youtube was down last night so wasnt able to upload video. Maybe I will get it done later today.   Here is an update on harvest:  
    • leech and others, i actually thought the same exact thing, the whole screen is used up with "history", trust me, I loved my marcum flasher and did not want to give into the 2D sonar; but after swapping it out of the boat from the summer use then using it all winter, I'm sold. Like getanet posted, you can still have the flasher screen with the helix so you dont have to use the 2d sonar view. hence my argument, smartphone (with all of the gadgets, summer, winter, etc) vs flip phones (flasher only).   but I rarely use the flasher portion on my helix and opt to the 2d sonar (by the way with 2d you still get the flasher/rts window in real time) and it's history. you can adjust the size of your history and RTS window on the helix as well, and I've found to have the history useful at times as well, if you look away for instance and see a mark on the history screen, you can be fore-warned of a nearby fish, with a flasher, you get that quick flash and its gone.    it took me some coaxing just like when I didnt want to switch out of my reliable dependable flip phone to a fancy smartphone, but I'm a convert now, and I still bring my Marcum with
    • Sounds like a great trip, I'm more than a little jealous. Also a great bit of parenting.  Sounds like your son is well on his way to being a good man, well done.
