i haven't used these since i was a kid. i use to dig them next to the chicken house.
another good one is fiddle worms. now they are white and some are 14 inches long. i use a 20 year old hand saw that has never been sharpened. go to a spot in the woods that hasn't burned in several years that stays damp year round. i cut a dogwood down about 2 feet from the ground and about 2 inches thick. start sawing down the middle of the stump and if the worms are there they will be crawling out of the ground in minutes. i usually do this alone now so i wait until i can see several all the way out of the ground before i stop sawing and pick them up.
Here in Calif, some of the baitshops have "Nitro worms". These were artifically, colored somehow! The difference as fars as I could tell, was about 2 dollars! As for the green worms you guys are talking about, there is excelent info on green worms in the B.O.C. archives! http://brotherhood-of-catfishermen.c...tml?1087967250
Dink, I was born and raised here in Ohio, thought I knew every critter that flew, swam, crawled or walked on four or two legs, but I never heard of or saw a buzzard worm! Are they only in southern Ohio? Master cat, get those pics up, I'm always up for something new.
