    We used to have a lot of 'em around here when I was a kid, but now I never see any. Me and my son went looking in all the spots where I used to get them and we couldn't find any. :confused2:

    This link says you'll be able to buy them on line soon. Has some good info on them. I always heard of them being called catawba worms myself. My grandfather use to have Catawba (or Catalpa) trees about 2 dozen or so that we would pick the worms from. "The best bait in the world" he use to say for catfish! This was the first bait I ever used for cats as my grandfather taught me how to fish.
