Default Bagging Blood Worms

Hello all, Im new to this site but I've been striper fishing for 20+ years. Two years ago while fishing the river a guy showed me how to bag up my blood worms. I though he was crazy until he banged a 40 five minutes later. Ive been bagging mine ever since. you use half the bait and none of those d--m perch can get to the bait. Those big bass just take the whole bag, so the bag can be used again most times. I was just wondering if any one else does this.

Is this similar to bagging salmon roe, with a cheescloth tied to the hook shank?

It's similar to bagging roe in that the material used is the same as the salmon kits, except the kit will run you about 12 bucks. I go to walmart's fabric section and buy 2 or 3 yards for about a buck. Then go to the bait shop or sporting goods store and buy some magic tread and your set. Almost a years worth of bags for less than five dollars. We cut the fabric in 4 to 5 inch squares, place a couple of nice size bloods in the middle, bring all the corners in and make a littlle sack, I twist the bag to make it tight around the worms, then while holding the top just wrap the magic tread around about ten times and snap it off. Cut the excess off abouve the tread and you have a nice bait ball for the bass. I like using a 8/0 octopus and just run the hook right trough the bag and let settle in the curve of the hook. . Perch can't get to the bait and i don't have to check the bait for those "one hit wonders".

Strikes me as quite similar to catfishing rigs, with panty hose(or cheesecloth) holding chicken liver or whatever else you feel like using for bait together.

It seems to be all about the smell when Stripers are after Bloods, at least in the Hudson.

Thanks for spreading the knowledge, Shane-

So how does that work out insofar as how often do you need to check or change your bait?

What is the specific Walmart-fabric-section-name for the fabric? Is it just basic cheesecloth, or some kind of nylon-netting thing?

Thanks again, man- I've been wracking my brain trying to come up with some way to reduce my Bloodworm expenditures for this Spring Run on the Mighty Hudson.

Gracias.

Wow that sounds cool. Do the fish ingest the fabric?

The fabric is a red nylon-netting they have it in different sizes, from a really fine mesh to slightly larger holes. As far as changing the bait I'll let it go for a while if nothing is going on, but i will carefully remove the old sack and place it and a fresh worm in a new sack, just makes a bigger ball. I have also started adding gulp blood worms to the sacks, one live one gulp and so far the bass dont seen to mind.

Thumbs up Re: Bagging Blood Worms

Mad props to shane b for sharing this info- it works, and can save you $.

That's what this site is all about- sharing knowledge.

Should probably work with mushy formerly frozen herring chunks too.

Others have seen me do it and be succesful and are trying it themselves on the shores of the mighty Hudson here in NY.

An excellent way to deal with the RIDICULOUS price of Bloodworms.

Thanks again , Shane
