    Ive never heard of Superworms for catfish bait until last night while bank fishing on the Ohio river. There was an older gentleman fishing just down the bank from us and looked to be using nightcrawlers from the container he had beside his chair. As darkness approached he gathered up his gear and came over to ask if we wanted the rest of his bait. "Sure" I said "what do you got?" Well he smiled with a big grin and said "I got these Superworms here if you want them". So we gladley accepted and he hurried off and left. I decided what the heck, why not try one and here is what I have learned about Superworms:

    1. In the first picture below, they are quite different looking from your ordinary earthworm.
    2. They are very aggressive worms and can do some real physical damage when trying to put one on the hook. (2nd picture below).
    3. They wont stay on the hook very long because they are strong enough to straighten out the hook or even break it to escape.(3rd Pic)
    4. We actually got lucky enough to catch a catfish on one but as you can see the Superworm really wooped up on this catfish with some heavy blows to the head and body during the battle. The catfish later died from internal injuries that were caused by the punching and slugging from the Superworm. (4th Pic) on next post

    This is my review on Superworms as bait and suggest strongly to avoid using them.

    Let me tell you folks, when that guy gave them to us, I had no idea how much caos and devestation the could cause. I took them home and put them in the fridge last night to use for getting bluegills and this morning the fridge door was open and they had all escaped. I am afraid of what they might do to the house. Can anyone help me find a super bird to get rid of them or even a super fish that can handle them, LOL!!!
    PS. Walt, I told you it wasn't a good idea to keep them, we should have thrown them in the river when we had the chance, LMAO!!!

    thanks for the tip walter, i'll be sure and avoid them. i heard about a guy using those worms once before. he managed to wrestle it onto the hook, but when he attempted to cast the rod the worm somehow gained control of it and beat him senseless. too bad that rod was an ugly stik...

    you're hilarious man!:smile2:

    I think you should find a worm whisperer to train them. You could leave all your rods at home and turn them worms loose to kick some catfish butt. It might be cheaper in the long run. I lost a lot of tackle this weekend...got into some logs.

    There was a problem with them throwing the logs onto the bank and not really caring where they landed!!! Have you ever tried to fish while it is raining 6' logs and 50lb boulders, LOL!!! These worms are some bad__s dudes!!!! Between the straightened hooks, the torn up fingers and, dodging logs and rocks, I think I am gonna have to not use them anymore, LOL!!!

    Do I really need to point out the obvious? You are supposed to use the kryptonite hooks with them. It really tames them down. They loose their super powers, and all they can do then is lay there and wiggle.:wink:
