So my friend has 2 very small Tilapia in his fish tank, courtesy of my cast net. They are fun to watch, but can be aggressive. Anyhow, we went fishing recently and had some left over Earthworms. My friend put a whole one in the tank to see what would happen. The 2 Tilapia munched it good, and kept it away from the other fish in the tank as well.
Hmmmm...that got me thinking the earthworm could be the best bait for Tilapia, but if I used it, ALL of the fish in the lake would want to take a swing at the earthworm. For example, on the trip that we had left over earthworms, I used them and caught 1 Bass, 1 big Bluegill and 1 Catfish. So what would be the best bait other than the earthworm for Tilapia?
