Years ago when my uncles fished Ba$$ tourneys they used to take a needle and pump air into a Nightcrawler, to make it bigger. They swore by it. Would this help my odds of catching a decent sized cat? Or do cats with any size just ignore worms? Decent sized to me is anything over 5 pounds, because the biggest Ive caught was less than that. One more queston- Walmart sells these little packs of Shad. I don't have a casting net yet, should I buy some of the Shad or does it need to be fresh.? I think next time I see somebody casting a net Im going to try to buy some off them.
