Worm Bin for Bait?

(1/3) > >>

InquiringMind:
I fished only a few times as a kid and I'm looking to start next spring.

I already have a worm bin going for compost, but I'm wondering if I can use it to grow my own bait. Has anyone had any experience doing this? If so, do red wrigglers make for good bait or do I need to start a second bin with night crawlers?

fritz_monroe:
I don't do a lot of fishing, but I know I've seen red wigglers sold in those bait vending machines.

d3nni5:
Wiggles are a good trout bait.   I like them for any pan fish.  Crawlers are good for the above and bigger fish like walleyes,  large mouth and cat.   I will check a worm at just about anything.   Grow them and give it a try.

Sweet, I'll just keep on keepin' on with the red wrigglers. It would be easy enough to buy some night crawlers and set up a second bin. Might as well have the variety and second option.
