worms

5 posts in this topic

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!

Check the "bass".. lots a great info and discussions on senkos and worm plastics and such.

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.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
