I have an area in the front of the house that in the spring I can pick up thousands and they are out there in full force this morning. I think the water is pumpimg them right up and out of the ground.

I tried crawlers last winter for panfishing and couldn't get a bite. I was using small chunks. I was watching them with the camera and they would just sniff and go away. I switched to a waxie and they nailed it.

What do you fish for with crawlers under the ice?

With all the rain we are getting lately the crawlers are doing the back stroke down the sidewalks and alleys.

I better get a few in some fresh dirt for Looper bait later on this fall.

This weather just isn't right. I'm walking for pheasants today and monarchs and yellow sulphurs are flying around, grasshoppers are jumping on me, ladybugs and boxelders are covering the house, earthworms are on the sidewalks this last week. No wonder I can't shoot anything. Anything thermally regulated is completely screwed up. The only thing that is right are plants (photoregulated).

We need cold NOW!

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
