Whats your fave lure/bait/setup? Funny story...when I was living in California many years ago, I had bought a couple of packs f 4inch purple worms with orange tails. Well I never worked well in any environment i fished so into the bottom of the tackle box they went. When I moved out East to work for corporate america, I found these worms and fished them..and fished them..and fished them. I tell you, I have never had so many hits and catches on any other worm or bait. Not sure what happened, but I caught Largemouth, smallmouth, pickeral, bluegill, mudfish(florida trip). I fished river, lake, pond, clear , muddy, deep, shallow....go figure. Anyways, I think I have one of these left and I have tried similar looking worms but not to the same effect. Do you think that sitting for so long did something to the composition of them and they had a scent of some sort? Is the secret to age worms for a few years? Just thought I'd share. by the way, I fish mostly rubber worms and crawdads. Never had luck with spinners. Whats your poison?
