Have you guys ever put them ice water just before you use them? Makes them really firm and wiggly.

Ice water has the opposite affect on me  :-)

Like a frightened turtle...
my crawlers are pretty much always cold when I take them fishing. I use a cooler and ice packs.

Gotta respect the worm.

I have a couple of bigger styrofoam boxes - like from Omaha steaks.  I put a couple inch deep layer of compost in the bottom then fill the rest with wet leaves and cover it with wet paper. I feed them my wife's coffee grounds daily.  I keep about 150-200 per box...... I found that I need to cut a couple inch  hole in the top to give them air or the stuff gets moldy..... I cover the hole with a mesh screen so they don't escape.....
Corn meal will make them white. Oat meal will too but it gets sticky.

Interesting..... just bedded mine down in a tote with lots of damp newspaper. I guess I don’t care what they look like. As long as they don’t have that deep dark dirt. Hate worm dirt.

Yeah I hated that stuff they came in too. Would get under my nails and hard to wash off my rough hands. I also had a bad habit of wiping it off on my pants.

When I buy worms first think I do I’d dump all the dirt and rinse them off. Then they go into the newspaper. Within a week they deposit all the black dirt they ingested.

I guess you're not a crawler then.  ;D

Makes sense. I used to use the shredded bedding they sell.
