    I've heard of guys using the blower to infuse bluegills, crawdads before but never worms. The best would be to use sardine juices with the blower and put in the nightcrawler, the scent trail with sardines is great in a little current. I have put sardine juices in several baits and have better than average success with it.

    ok forgive my ignorance, but whats a worm blower? I have injected tubes and squid with a limburger chz and sardine mixture with descent results. just warmed it up a lil and with some old measuring spoons added it to them then put in fridge over night to harden.

    I've taken secret 7 and globbed it on cut bait, in tough flood conditions on the river. Only tried it once, and did get a 5 lb channel cat on it. All the other poles with just secret 7, and just plan cut bait went untouched.

    A worm blower is like a visine bottle with a needle instead om the spout. I have one that now I have a use for!

    needle ,one with a little bigger needle to get the stink in better, cod liver oil might be worth a try, about $8 for a nice size bottle at wal-mart. Mmmm mix it with sardine oil to thin it out to go thru needle better.

    also pretty good to inject shrimp with sun rendered crayfish oil.

    Would a Tony Chachere's injector needle be too big?
    Sounds like a good idea.

    For about the same price as a worm blower, you can go the the pharmacy at Wal-Mart and buy a whole bag of insulin syringes. Then you don't have to worry about cleaning or clogging your worm blower.

    I saw the idea of using an old hypodermic needle over 40 years ago, I even got one when I was in the hospital once. I was planning to use it on worms but never got around to it, its been lost. haven't replaced it, but figured a grease injection needle would work, if I had a way to connect it to a bottle. I got a box of used syringes now, but not sure I can use em without a hassle from anyone. Might try it out trout fishing sometime or cat fishing if I get an opportunity.

    Any luck with this idea yet? I wonder if just using the worm blower with air would actually float the worm and hook off the bottom? And if it did, would it feel and appear somewhat natural to the fish?
