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'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
