So i went and go my fishing license this morning 28 bucks ouch if that wasn't bad enough. The bait shop was trying to sell dozen of worms for $5.25 what a rip off. So either i am going to use lures this year or i am gonna wait till Friday night wet a spot in my yard hammer this metal pole rig. I made which works well you cut a piece of extension cord attach ends to metal pole drive pole in ground were you wet ground then you plug the plug in and it slightly shocks the worms and they come to surface it doesn't kill the worms just makes them come to the surface.

Electricity and water....

Make sure you dance around the metal pole in bare feet as the little buggers come to the surface.

rake through a few leaf piles in the yard and I have more bait then I can use in a week. I have kind of just settled for dry flies for where I fish most of the time anyway.

That's what I do. I just make a big pile of leaves, soak with hose and come back in a few days.
