    Bobby,
    Please a short tutorial on salting bloodworms.
    Every time I do it, they empty out like an old balloon and are miserable to try to fish with.

    What's the secret or is there one?

    Use salt with no iodine. Do worms while still good if they get milky your wasting you time. When you put salt on the worms they are going to bleed and if you dont drain that blood off they will never freeze. I do it this way. take my small crab steamer and but the worms in the top section add salt and mix salt and worms together. Blood drips into bottom section. I keep cool whole time in a cooler. After worms dehydrate I shake excess salt off and put in quart bags in numbers I will use a trip and freeze. Smaller number of worms I take and salt worms in cups the come in with lots of grass between them and bottom so the juice runs to bottom and worms stay dry. Main thing is to keep worms out of fluid in bottom to dehydrate them and keep them cool. Only good for one thaw so don't pack too many together.

    Thanks Bobby,
    I suspect that as a charter captain, you'll have more to salt than us single baggers.
    Do you figure I could lay what remains from a bag on a paper towel and salt them?
    Won't that wick away all the blood and junk?

    On the nuclear worms... They're unlike bloods which have to be cool. The nuclear have to stay above 60 degrees, but I kept some alive for 6 months by simply changing the mud and occasionally giving them a bath in saltwater.
    The bath seemed to get rid of any nastys they had on them and the fresh mud gave them something to eat.
    Almost became pets until they dried out.... Keep extra saltwater on them.

    jlowe,

    yes i buy them from Caroline. bmail me or call next time you go down. chances are good i will too... unless the kids have a soccer game or something. love to impart what i know. should be an informative 30 secs or so.

    sandworms are great. they just don't come in until warmer weather. they will die if they get too cool. i sprinkler some creek water on them every few days and they will last for weeks.
