Night crawlers and worms for ice fishing?

3 posts in this topic

Okay this may be a dumb question but here goes.... I have a worm farm at home for all my summer fishing needs, now heading into winter and I got a bunch of crawlers but why don't people use crawlers or worms now [besides larva etc.] Is it just that they are hard to get? and keep alive? or don't they work? I can get by the first two barriers..

For the first time in my ice fishing life I use crawlers a couple weeks ago. I totally smoked the crappies. These are crawlers that I was totally surprised were still alive in the garage fridge from September.

I have used crawlers and worms during late ice for sunnies several times and had good luck. Also, Walleys eat them too grin.gif

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
