    Hey Ron,

    My Brother-in-law-use Pile Worms all of the time and he digs them up himself - I'll ask him how does he keep them alive & lively for you. :confused2: I'll get back to you on that one.

    Neried polychetes...

    We called the ones we bought in RI "clam worms"

    I would do the same thing the biat shops do: keep them just barely moist (SALT water only) in a bag or box in the refrigerator.

    I got to go with John on this one - I talked to my Brother-in-law a little while ago, and he said the say thing.

    Hey George I remember the firsttime I had ever fished saltwater I was by myself and the baitshop owner suggested i use them for the school stripers. I got To the beach thinkin ok time to hook up a worm. I will tell you what when those black pincher things popped out of his face I almost shat myself. To this day I still wont use them and besides if I wanted to catch little striped bass I may as well fish for LMB

    Were do you find them at? Are they in sand, dirt? They are to much $$$ for me. I raise red worms but love to fish with pile worms.
