Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

I just saw this on youtube.  I'll have to keep an eye out for black walnuts now.

You are showing your age. The Poseiden has been obsolete since the '70s. Boomers are armed with Tridents now, 10 MIRVS each.

 A fence charger is a good way to elctroworm.

I can't keep my 4 & 7 year old daughters from digging in the yard to catch worms!

Don't stop them from digging the yard, but rather, teach them also to cultivate what they found. Look at Bruce, Tony, and Walt, and among many others here. They literally dug up their yards and turn the yards into a productive land. They may be the next generation that will bring about incredible bounties of ??? How about providing them the ability to cultivate an outdoor worm farm, in combination of vermicomposting, if  your family have time and patience for such thing. It will be perfect since they'll be doing plenty of yard work with their abundant youthful energy.

SHUT THE DADGUM FRONT DOOR...thats about neat ,,I'll probably catch a million just to watch em come out. I have fideled worms .some call it  other names like grunting or rooting but this is the bomb..LOLRITF

Looks like my larger dogs love to gain additional proteins by gobbling up all my larger earthworms in the backyard that attempted to escape the over saturated soil. My lawn is down to less than 20% of mix species. Couldn't find any more larger ones beyond 4 inches after a few quick digs at the prime spots contain high concentration of compost..Great..

 

Visited a friend yesterday for the Mother's Day party, and spotted the Alabama/Georgia jumper crawling across the walk way from an over saturated soil spot. I was surely surprised to find one in this neck of the urban jungle. Surely enough, tracing back to where it came from, I spotted someone living in one of the apartment had a luscious yard, full of herbs and plants, while the surround neighbors' yards were completely barren. No wonder I found the jumper here.

 

Since my jumper's population is less than 100 in the garage compost bin, time to replenish with another 1000 from Uncle Jim's Worm Farm. You guys live in the central areas and east coast are lucky to have jumpers in your soils. They are the best for soil aeration, and one awesome fishing bait. You guys should harvest them, and cultivate them to make some cash flow on the side. They are nature's gold when it comes to panfishing.

I will have to try this, my Father in Law has plenty of walnut trees on his property, considering we can cross the creek.  might try the battery thing, but with a 9v instead of 12v since I dont have easy access to a 12v....

Remember, go easy with the black walnut solution mix. It's not only poisonous to worms and fish, ingest a nice concentration enough, it will also bring you down.

 

As for the battery, check your 9V to see if you have sufficient amperage to get the worms up. If your 9V battery cannot shove out 3AHr load, you're not going to get them out of the ground. Just make sure to protect yourself. 1A current going up from your legs/arms and through your heart is more than enough to kill you.

I just raise my own worms in my basement. two rubbermaid containers, a little peatmoss, and 100 european crawlers. in 6 months you will have thousands of worms, in a year so many you will never run out. i have not bought bait for 4 years and the bin is still going strong.
 

I used to read a lot of books from Herters back in the 60's like ,"Professional Guide secrets" or some such. They said to mix soapy water with dish soap in a fairly strong solution, and do the same as with the walnuts. I think it's the acid that irritates them to come up, and you have to rinse them the same as with walnuts. Thanks for posting this! I bet you could store dried walnut hulls and use them even when the nuts weren't on the trees yet too!

That's a good idea!  Then I wouldn't have to buy worms in the Spring!

Of course, Leo has the best idea.  Just farm them, and harvest what you need.
