How long can I keep Nightcrawlers

4 posts in this topic

I bought crawlers a week ago and have not used them all. How long will they stay alive in the fridge? I have them in a larger plastic crawler container that 6 dozen of them came in. They seem to die on me after about a week. Is that normal?

Thx, LovenLifeGuy

Are you by chance not punching a few breathing holes it the container? That and if the temp is too low you may freeze them.

I've kept crawlers in the refrigerator for at least a month by just keeping the soil-like substance they are in slightly moist.

I have one of those yellow ended crawler keepers. I use worm bedding in it. I had some in the garage fridge for the entire winter. Actually I had forgotten about them. They were all fairly healthy when I opened it up... I had been expecting it to be just nasty! I let them go in the yard, I figured after that they desereved to be free! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      I had a trip recently with a group of friends and was quite surprised by something. Has it become the norm for outfitters to charge people who are renting shacks from them a road access fee? I have stayed at many different places and this has never happened before. I am not against road access fees as I know several outfitters and I know how hard they work and gladly pay this fee if I am using my wheelhouse or just going out with my portable. If this has become the norm I wish we had been told this in advance.

      We got out the weekend of the 11th and filmed a YouTube video from around the area.  My buddy Trapper was gracious enough to put a few clips of me within since I'm usually the cameraman for him.  We landed 27 this day and since we've caught a lot less but we've gotten a few big ones so far.  It was a blast out there catching them and hopefully you enjoy his video.
