Night crawlers as live bait
« on: Feb 04, 2019, 04:47 PM »
Besides chub minnows, has anyone had any sort of success using Night crawlers as a Live bait for either pike or walleye? we use them on Worm harnesses all the time in summer on Lake Erie as a go to in most occasions. I figure They are cheap, they work well in summer, I was looking for your Input. Thank you one and all.

It's meat, it will catch pike. Not sure on walleye, they generally like motion.

I have good luck catching trout on crawlers, especially rainbows, havenít targeted pike or walleyes with them.

Thanks, Im going to experiment with them this week on/in two locations. The one is known to have anything under the water and the other is infamous for walleye and musky. I just think hey, its moving, it has a scent, if they take a nip and like it they will prob eat it. Worth a shot, easy to transport, small investment.

Been seeing a lot about guys using hot dogs as bait. My buddy went as far as pinning the tail of a Bluegill at one end. He never had flag. I told him to throw on some mustard and onions next time.  ;)
