What does everyone think of the new plastic worms instead of the regular, somewhat difficult to keep healthy nightcrawlers? And do you have a favorite color?

Thanks!

Wow, you just asked a quick question for a huge topic.

As a bass fisherman, there are hundreds of different plastics to pick from. My favorites include 4-5 inch senkos, a variety of tubes(not really a worm) as well as various powerbait and others. It's hard to know what to look for at a store. They haev salted, scented, 3x stretch, they have floating, sinking. They have worm baits, creature baits, tubes, salamanders, etc. The list goes on. The bass forum would be helpful for bass fishing.

Then you also have lures specifically for walleyes, panfish, even pike and muskie. If you are not sure about what to buy or colors, presentations etc, I would post under the forum for the species you want to target, and you will get your question answered much more thouroughly than a broad topic of plastics.

Good luck!

My favorite right now is the Berkley GULP! Ribbon-Tailed worm - I think it is 6" or 7" in length (they only make one model of ribbon-tailed worms)

It has been working excellent for me... the long slender tail offers a ton of action without having to work too hard to produce fish. *shrug*

Plastic worms can be a wonderful bait, but I have healthy nightcrawlers in my refridgerator that have been there for 3 months. I have a composter in my backyard, and store crawlers in compost that is not completely turned to dirt yet. I was worried after a couple months that my Crawlers were dead, but to my surpise they were as healthy as can be.

      Nice Job Jeff. Love the secret potion you know how scent can play a key role in the bite.    Wow some good prizes for this years event. People come on out and join the fun. We all will do are best to help you ice a few cats, maybe even your first. 
    • IceHawk
      Those are some dandies . The eye bite has been a little rough lately.  What worked to put those two nice ones topside?

      First off welcome to the site and thanks for posting. Not sure about a road plowed on Woman but broad water and lantern bay are good  places to find panfish on that lake. More than likely there will be a truck trail to both as they are pretty popular spots. Good luck

      Fishing as Good Friday night then Saturday not so much. Pictures from Friday, none from Saturday because everyone knows what one 5” perch looks like.

      Was on Green by Chisago with my daughter who is 6. Like others, we marked a lot of fish but getting them to bite wasn’t easy. Did catch a fair number of bluegills and crappies but really had to coax them into biting. The bite did pick up a little as it got closer to dark though. We stayed out until about 6:30pm. My daughter didn’t want to leave but I was out of propane for my heater so it was getting a little cold so we left. Everything was mostly small but did catch a couple of decent sized crappies. Ice is thick and you could pretty much drive anywhere with 4WD. Fun time with the kid and she’s hooked on it. Already asking to go again.

      First timer checking in. My folks bought a place on Child/Boy River. Looking forward to spending more time in the area. Wondering if anyone knows if there are roads plowed on Woman Lake? Was hoping to try and catch an evening/morning bite this week. Thanks

      Looking forward to it.  Here are some more prizes.
