I followed the tip that Techno2000 gave us on cutting night crawlers into half inch pieces with scissors, let the pieces drop into a pan or paper plate that is coated with corn meal, then put the pieces in a small container with a little meal, put in your pocket and go fishing. No need to keep them on ice. It worked like a charm, I'll be fishing with night crawlers this way in the future.

When I bought the worms from Academy a few days ago, I changed out the dirt/poop and put them in fresh bedding in the same container. Mixed some wet coffee grounds into the new bedding, sprinkled a little cornmeal on a small spot, and put them in the frig. Walla, clean night crawlers. I also took a 50 pack of Super Worms with me this morning, and fished with both types of worms. Gills were happy to eat both types. Ran out of night crawler pieces from about four worms, so used Super Worms for the rest of the morning. Left at 10:45 a.m. with fish still biting. As Banker says after a good trip, it just doesn't get any better.

Thanks Techno2000, you've given me a better way to fish with night crawlers.

One of the best tip I ever learned from a fishing forum was the pencil trick to get a Hook out. When the fish takes the hook deep, and you can't get to it, simply take a pencil, insert it down the mouth ,hold the line tight to the pencil with your thumb.Now just spin the fish around 6 or 7 times, and presto the hook warps around the pencil. Now this truly works like a charm.

Now I've got to try that. I can usually remove a deep hook out of a bass, but the little mouth of a sunfish makes it impossible for me sometimes.
