Carrying Live Worms While Fishing?...Problem Solved

Anyone who spends any time fishing with live worms deals with the problem of carrying that silly little Styrofoam container around with them. Then when the worms are gone there is the problem of the container itself. Many times these simply get left along the lake or stream. Many years ago my fishing mentor came up with a simple remedy for this situation, and in this article I'm going to tell you what that remedy was.

The solution for carrying your live worms while you're fishing is your old socks. Yea, I said your old socks. All that needs to be done is to take one of your old socks and cut it off about four inches from the end of the sock (where your toes would go). This creates a little "bait sock". Now you simply attach this "bait sock" to your fishing vest or shirt using a safety pin. You simply take the worms from their Styrofoam container and place them into your new bait bag. Just the worms, not the dirt!

Your worms will stay in your new bait bag all day. And when you need one, it's right there at your fingertips. And the worms DON'T crawl out! Many people don't believe me when I tell them this, but it's true. I've been using some manifestation of a bait bag, including the sock version, for over fifteen years, and have never had the worms crawl out. Oh sure, on occasion you may encounter an oddball worm with the attention span of a two year old, but you just push the little guy back in with his friends, and you're good to go.

If you don't like the idea of having a piece of an old sock hanging from your fishing vest, you can check out JRWfishing for a much more modern version, but the bottom line is that once you begin to use a bait bag of some sort, you'll never fish without one. Not to mention the fact that the less Styrofoam containers that get left on the banks of our rivers and streams, the better. That's definitely a point that we can all agree on.
