How does everyone get their night crawlers for fishing? I made a home made machine to extract them out of the ground.

    I just raised a few then threw them in the compost pile. That way they're ripe for the picking.

    My horse manure pile is full of great big crawlers. The digging is quick and easy. My kid once considered starting his own worm business from this source.

    Ok now that I see no one uses any contraptions here is what I do. Note to everyone this can be dangerous but has a big payoff. I take and old extension cord cut the female end off. Take two metal clothes hangers and straighten them out. Seperate the wires and attach the straight hangers to the wire. Tape off more than you need. Put the wires in the ground 12-15 inches apart about 5 inches deep. Turn on the power the worms will come up to the positive wire. Once the worms stop coming up just reverse the plug and then they will come up again. I used this a few times when I was going fishing last minute. Just as a side note the electricty is not enough to kill the worms because I harvest them and they are still moving a week later. Again use CAUTION you could get shocked.

    Turn over rocks/logs in an old apple orchard. Most of the worms are pretty small tho.

    The old fashioned way with a flashlight on a wet night. Though, I read about a method that scares them out of the ground by, supposedly, sounding like a mole/gopher. Pound a stake into the ground and rub another stick against it until it vibrates. Anyone know if this works?
