Half flat of crawlers
6/4/14 @ 3:56 PM
Half flat is 250. Actual count,223. That's counting worms that in no way could be considered "nightcrawlers"... Total was a little over $50 with the $2 deposit on the container. Accidental miscount? Or deliberate. Opinions? It's not my first time getting shorted on bulk bait there before. In fact,I expected it...But I didn't feel like driving in to Milwaukee to Minnesota Leeches during a rainy afternoon. I already seldom use that bait shop. I will further reduce my patronage. Thanks,Becky. MN Leeches and Vados Bait may not see a big uptick in sales but every little bit counts. I would have been better off buying ten,2-dozen containers of 'crawlers at Walwmart.

Just picked up a 1/2 flat last week at dave's bait in Kaukana. He shorted my neighbor so I thougth I would count and see for myself since I was transfering these to different containers anyway. I had 277 for $35. His prices just went up $10 compared to a few weeks ago. Some of the crawlers are small and would not work for harnesses, but fine for perch and pitching.

You are right CDS. I got clay soil and the pickin is pretty good. Went out for ten minutes the other night and got three dozen in the yard. Its like picking up money if you ask me. I also got a shocker if I need it. I read that the one I got has killed thirty people who left it plugged in when they went pickin. You wanna borrow it?

When it's been raining and raining and raining...every couple/three days for a couple months you can't get 250 in an hour. You'd be lucky to get 50.
Soil type is a big consideration. Think guys in areas with sandy soil get good 'crawler picking?

I'm quite sure that Minnesota leeches in Milwaukee will ship you crawlers. The times we have done it the crawlers arrived packed in ice packs and very big and healthy. Dave, who is the owner, does a good job with his bait. I recommend his baits.
