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

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
