How Do You Carry Live Worms While Fishing?

by Pursue The Outdoors on November 30th, 1999 in Uncategorized

This may sound like a silly question, but I always found carrying live worms while fishing was a big pain in the butt. That was until my fishing mentor showed me how to solve this problem with an old piece of clothing. Yes, I said an old piece of clothing. You know how there always seems to be an extra sock hanging out in your sock drawer? Well, my mentor came up with a use for that old sock. That’s right, a worm carrier.

Before you start to think I’m crazy, just hear me out. Simply take the old sock and grab a hold of the end that your toes would go in. Now simply measure four or five inches down and cut the sock off. You now have a worm carrier. A little bait bag, if you will. Simply use a safety pin and pin this little “pouch” onto the front of your fishing vest.

When you’re ready to go fishing, simply take the live worms out of their Styrofoam container and put them into your new bait bag. Just the worms, no dirt. A sock holds about a dozen worms depending on their size. The beauty of this concept is that the worms don’t crawl out! They simply sit in their new carrier and wait to be used. Once you begin using a worm carrier such as the one described here, you’ll wonder how you ever fished without it.

The one downfall to the sock carrier is that a sock carrier is pretty small and certainly less that esthetically pleasing. If you’re interested in the same concept, just bigger and much better looking, just check out JRWfishing. The bottom line is that whether you make your own or purchase a cool one, a worm carrier such as the one described here, is essential to your angling success. As I said, once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever fished without it.
