In freshwater, just about anything with fins or with four legs and a shell will take a worm.

I agree with Saiki on this.. Have seen big mrigals going for worms and snails ..

SJ - I dont think that the fake worms would have the same effect as the real ones. There is just something about the real thing ... ( as tempting as your statement was, I have refrained from posting a GRC-special reply :twisted: )

Fake soft plastic worms are lures and although they can be fished in a variety of ways, they're not really a substitute for the real thing.
Something like the baits made by Creme could do well "wacky rigged" and twitched along the botom in clear water.

Susheel,
f you plan to use "gulp' type fake worms, i think they are loaded with some fish attractant.For good measure, why dont you inject some cod liver oil with a 26gauge needle into the worm and see if you get a good 'blister', which will leak the attractant into the water?

Multiple worms or the Goocha rule. Basically it allows the minnows to peck around, create a little disturbance and then the big one comes and takes a big bite.

But putting a bunch on is probably the sickest thing I do!

Once tried using big blood worms found in Mangroves .. they are supposed to be deadly on Jacks & small groupers.
Them buggers bite. :x
