    I don't know if this is the correct place for this post. If not the mods can move it please.

    Anyway sometime back I talked to a member on here under my old name that I forgot. Anyway he told me how to make nightcrawlers swell up using I think layers of cottage cheese, newspaper, and worms. You would layer them someway or the other and the worms would get very large. I have did a search and cannot find anything on it. I was wondering if someone could possibly remember it or point me in the right direction. any help would be appreciated. Thanks and have a good one.

    I dont know if it works or not but it should make them float off the bottom at least thats why I do it.

    I have injected them with air to make them over 3 foot long.

    I just had a brain storm. I am going to try injecting them with something that smells really bad. Maybe it will leak slowly.

    Sounds like a good idea. Every time I eat fried onions it smells like someone injected me with somethin that smells bad. LOL! Only problem is that it doesn't attract anything. LOL!

    I also inject my crawlers with air. if you do it carefully they are pretty self sealing and will float real well of the bottom. Let us know it works injecting with juice, might kill em. Depending on what you use. might even give em dip in some dip bait's, just before casting. I'll give em a good dose of chew juice, I was told it covered my smell a long time ago.

    I always spray down crawlers with some kind of attractant, like crawdad or bait fish. Ran out one day and dipped one in karo syrup. caught a 3# flatt, lol

    I have tried the needle method. It seems that you can blow them up a little, but they will pop if you put too much in. Its kind of a nasty process. I'd try the newspapers and cottage cheese. Good luck. Let me know how it turns out.

    To get them really long you must inject them many many times in many many places
