Default Keeping sea worms

there was a question asked in the trolling section about keeping sea worms, rather than Hi-jacking the thread I figured I'd post it here..

Back in the day we used to dig our own worms at low tide, and fish the incoming either livelining worms(absolutely deadly when the worm migration is on) and keep them for up to three or four days....

First get a cooler big enough to hold a small box at least 12" long X 8" wide, bigger is better, I made mine from wood, place your box on your ice in your cooler, leave the drain open, fresh water will kill worms quicker than the sun, place a piece of burlap moistened but not soaking wet with seawater in the bottom of the box, spread your worms out over it and cover them with seaweed also moistened with seawater, be sure to cull out any dead worms daily, the worms Will stay firm and lively for a week or so if cared for in this manner....

I always use fresh newpaper under the seaweed. I think the trick is to keep them dry. I change the paper every day. I get a hole piece ,two or three pieces and line the bottom of the flat. And do about the same as you do Rocco. I hate to get worms when they are in those little pieces of paper or that other stuff they use. You know when you can't see them. Phils Bait on the Revere rotory was the best. He closed last year. Santini worms suck. I like him, but his worms have to go. Bad, bad, bad, It's hard to get good worms today.

Default Buzz Bedding

I fished with Charlie Shores last year. He turned me on to BuzzBedding. I always used it years ago for night crawlers. If you mix it with sea water and then do the paper on the bottom of the container. I stayed on the Vineyard last summer for 2 weeks (they dont sell sea worms on Island) I took 4 dozen with me and they lasted a week before we ran out. Keep them in the frig at night. My wife loves that part!
