    I take them and hook them thru their collars and put 3-6 on at a time. Thats why if you can get them from your yard on a wet night ya need to get a plenty and then keep alive with coffee grounds,potato peelings,food scraps. Put them in refrigerator and they'll do just fine!:smile2:

    It depends on how you are fishing and the size of the crawlers.
    When I was fishing 50 hook trot lines I just used about 1/4 of the worm.
    When I'm pole and line fishing I generally use 1 with as much worm on the hook as possible.
    My methods might change since I'm trying circle hooks.
    best of luck
    just.

    You will see down about an inch from their heads a kinda whitish pinkish thickness.It goes all around them and it just a small area.That is there collars. I think not sure about this but it's close to their hearts,so it's alittle thicker in there!:big_smile:

    Seem to work best when I leave at least 2/3 of the length hanging off the hook.....for what it's worth.

    I'll load up a hook until there's no room left on it. Using night crawlers is good, as in it'll catch all species of cats, but the problem is it'll catch all the little ones. Aswell as every fish in that particular body of water...so if you're going strictly for cats and not a bunch of carp and drum or what not, you might want to give something else a try. That's just something to take into consideration. Good luck with the fishin'.
