Nightcrawler worms as bait in saltwater
« on: Tue 7 Jan 10:07 2020 »
Has anyone ever tried those nightcrawler worms as whiting bait? I know they are great freshwater bait, but I would assume they would die pretty quick in saltwater, but do they work?

They are pretty useless in the salt, they go really skinny and hard to get on the hook.
Bloodworms or yabbies are great
