Unruly nighcrawlers

Recommended Posts

I picked up a half flat of night crawlers a couple weeks ago.  My challenge is keeping them in the styrofoam flat.  They want to crawl out.  Keeping them in the frig.  I have changed bedding once, they have been feed twice, and I have them in a plastic shopping bag.  This is the first time in many years having this problem.

 

Any idea of why they are trying to escape or ideas on how to keep them from getting out?

Does your fridge smell like fish???,,, Maybe they are trying to stay alive with the smell of predators in the fridge ,,, Maybe put a bungie around the flat to close any gaps

I think I just need to fish more, use more crawlers, catch more fish.  I will over the next 6 weeks for so.  Thanks!!!!

I bought crawlers by the half flat when we went to canada a couple weeks ago and they came in a styroform minnow bucket with holes in the lid. The lid seemed to fit tight and they never got out. You could always try that, it would not be very expensive.

I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.

Nice, fat, very active crawlers on a lindy rig should drive the fish wild.

 

One of my most successful methods on inland lakes is a crawler with air injected into it on a Lindy.

    • That's one of the main reason I run a Vexilar. I don't want to be the jerk that interferes with everyone else......
    • Was in Grand Marais for 6 days. Didn’t see one single grouse! Of course, it rained and snowed every day. So it was less than ideal conditions.
    • I've been shooting federal premium trophy copper in my .270 for the past few years.   I switched after the blue box federals didn't pass through a 3.5 year old buck at about 60 yards or so. I found the round just under the hide on the far side and only recovered the buck because I smelled him while doing a grid search. I've shot several deer with them and I have no complaints.  An added bonus is they shoot just like the blue box ones do in my rifle.  
    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!
