I've often heard the early bird gets the worm but I'm kinda confused?? I heard this Gravely dude up on Louisville had the secret of "properly" rigging and deploying of sour gummy worms. I hear he rigs them in such a manner that his boat barely has visible waterline when in route back to the dock with all those whisker fish he catches using "said" methods. Anyone care to share their experience with "said" methods? I hear that the only way you can get the scoop is to fish with this Gravely dude. Any info will be appreciated! Thinking about headed to Louisville to LEARN THE SECRET! clap

And Tom, I have developed a rig I call the worm leash that works great even in this high heat. I will show you how I tie one Saturday.

You can prolly catch more blues off the back of Toms dock where he cleans fish than you can anywhere else on LV.

I must admit. I am intrigued. With the disguised way Finfeather was holding the bag the other day, I wrote down what I could read. Then I jotted a few possibles of what I could not see fully. So I went to Wal-Mart after work. First I had to find where they moved the candy stash. If not found, then I would proceed to to sporting goods to check there. But no need. I found 'em in the candy stash aisle. Brand name is "Trolli". Item name is "Sour Brite Crawlers". Also noted up top as "America's Best Selling Gummi Worm". But they don't say >>> why <<< (eat them, or fish with them, or both).

Anyway, they are 3 bags short now. In 4 oz. bluish plastic bags noting about 3.5 servings per bag. A serving is 8 worms. So about 28 worms per bag. $1.74 per bag at Wal-Mart. Hey, they are low in sodium too. So you won't be giving your BlueCats High Blood Pressure. That's a good thing, right?!?

Bait cost tally---
$1.74 + tax (x 0.825) 0.14 = $1.88 per bag divided by 28 average per bag is 0.6771428 cents per bait (hook). We'll just round it up to 7 cents a hook. I would assume this is very economical. However, as just noted it melts in the water, due to the heat. So we'll throw in an average loss (spoilage) of 15% due to that there heat margin stuff. Take that 28 worms and you lose 4.2 which we'll round up to 5 to be safe. So that leaves 23 worms that can put in an average work day (15 minutes). If they don't produce in that time, I say, fire them. Unless my math is off, we're gonna go with 12.23 cent each now. Yikes, over budget. Just kidding. Anyways, it looks to be costs will run 7 cents to 12 1/4 cents per full time working gummi worm. Plus you get as a bonus- 5 part time working worms. Let's see if they try to squirm out of that.

It seems to be classified as candy, so it is taxable. You cannot get a farm or ranch tax reduction or claim exemption for "Kitty" feed. Picture that. Throw on about 40 or 50 bags in your cart & get to the counter & ask to fill out a tax exemption form. Make a cashier's day as you explain that one.

I just noticed that the 2nd & 3rd bag only cost $1 each though, as per my receipt. They must have had a "Kitty" special or something.

Uh Oh, there is a Safety Warning. I don't know if it due to FDA or OSHA regulations. But it says, "Small objects such as hard and soft candies may inadvertently become lodged in the throat." My question is, should we advise the BlueCats, or just let them choke on them? Could we actually become liable? Whew, I guess we would need to consult a "Kitty" lawyer for legal wormy advice.

Anyways, that's my Initial Research Report & I'm sticking with it, regardless how Gummi it is.

I guess all I can say, is Gee Thanks Tom!!! You realize this just means more research for me? That's all I need!
