You guys to the far east side area are lucky. The soil base is more clay/loam than here at the far side of Warren where there is a lot more sand. But, I did notice that it was good pickings for earthworms when I turned over part of the garden to bury some fish carcasses.

Are you guys picking them after the rain in the grass? Or, do you dig em up? We used to look for em at the golf course at night, with a dim light. I'd like to give it a try. Thanks.

took your advice and went out at 4:30 this a.m. walked over to the local golf course 4 houses away.used my headlamp and picked up 5-6 dozen in an hour before the sun came up and they were gone. i should have gone last night when it was still raining. i got enough for this weekend . pretty cool for my first time flashing worms.gee, worm flashing . is that better than perch milking?

sometime the bright flashlight will startle the crawlers so we used to but a piece of red celeophane (sp) over the lens attach it with a rubber band.
