The McCullock Technique for collecting fishing worms: Drive a 3-foot stake 6-8 inches deep into the ground. Remove or disengage the chain from a chain saw. Rest the bottom of the running chainsaw on top of the stake. The worms will be coaxed from the soil by the vibration.
Keep Bait in a Tic Tac Box For a really convenient waxworm dispenser when I’m ice fishing, I keep them in a Tic Tac container. The case probably holds about 30 waxworms. Plus, it’s easy to open and shake one worm out at a time without having to take off my gloves. -- Carl Dixon, Bethalto, Ill.
