Fishing with Red Wigglers “Red Worms”

Considering the type and size of fish you are trying to reel in, you’ll find plenty to catch with live Red Wiggler worms or (Eisenia Fertida). Also known under various common names, such as pan-fish worm, red worm, and trout worm. Red Wigglers are a reddish-brown color with small rings around their body and also have a yellowish tail and are best known for being composting worms. They love to thrive in rotting vegetation, dead leaves, and manure, at a temperature between (55-77 °F). These red worms can help reel a variety of fish such as striped bass, hybrid striped bass, white bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, flathead catfish, smallmouth bass, and crappie.
Red Wigglers are perfect for bait because crappie or smallmouth bass have smaller mouths and are either afraid or unable to eat big nightcrawlers consistently. Crappie fishing can be good around standing timber, bridge pilings, and artificial fish attracts. One of the best ways to catch pan fish is by using live Red Wigglers with the help of a true barbless hook. True barbless hooks are great because they give a very secure hookup. Channel and blue catfish are abundant, along with limited numbers of flat-head catfish in local waters.

Whichever rig you use, make sure to use a heavyweight, so that your worm stays in place on the bottom. When fishing with African nightcrawlers, be sure to keep a few things in mind. First, these worms are big, so you’ll need a large hook. Second, because they’re so juicy, they’ll often attract smaller fish. If you’re getting a lot of bites but not many keeper-sized fish, try downsizing your hook or cutting the worm in half.

Canadian Nightcrawlers Anglers Favorite Fishing Bait

If you’re looking for reliable and effective fishing bait, Canadian Nightcrawlers (Lumbricus Terrestris). The “Dew Worms” is a type of earthworm that is native to, you guessed it, Canada. These worms are resilient and can withstand cold temperatures, making them ideal for use in colder climates. They’re loaded with nutrients and they’re easy for fish to eat.

Unlike other types of worms, Canadian Nightcrawlers retain their natural shape and appearance when used as bait. This makes them more appealing, as they look like a natural food source. Canadian nightcrawlers are also relatively large, averaging 4-6 inches in length – perfect for larger fish like catfish, walleye, and carp.

While using live bait, keep them in a cool, moist environment until you’re ready to use them. A bait bucket or cooler works well for this. When you’re ready, thread the worm onto your hook so that only a small portion is sticking out. This will help keep the worm alive longer. There’s something about fishing with lively worms that just can’t be beaten. And when it comes to living bait, there’s nothing quite like the good old Canadian Nightcrawler.
