How difficult was it? How much would it bother you if I copied it? I'm not very good at computer things.

I used Paint Shop Pro. Just resized the three pics to share the same pixel height (115) and then just copy/pasted them into a 620x115 pixel picture. Then, overlayed the PB fish and added the "I subscribe" text. For the final touch, I used one of the built in picture frame filters to give it the torn edge look.

I'd be happy to make you one if you'd like. Just send me your preferred pics (full size). PM me for my email.

I could be wrong, but I don't think those are Redworms nor European Nightcrawlers.

European Nightcrawlers


Redworms



Thoughts?



All I know is that these critters eat my garbage and they make real good fish bait. Their great grandparents came from a carton of "fishworms" I bought at Cabalas in Hamburg, PA several years ago.

Catmandoo - I take it back. After seeing your new picture they sure do look like redworms. In the previous pic, I was just sure they weren't. Now, I think they ARE. Go figure. hehe

That looks absolutely nothing like any redworm I've ever seen in Texas.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

"Redworm" sounds to me like a name that likely has varied local meanings.

Maybe in Texas, you call Catmandoo's redworms "red perch"? ;\)

It happened again. I started this thread about two yeas ago after a long and frozen winter. Same story.

It got into the low 70s today. By noontime, I saw that the BG and LMB were schooling and sunning themselves just below the surface.

About two weeks ago, my worm bin was a solid frozen block of kitchen scraps. Today, the weather forecast was so incredible, I was forced to call in with a bad case of 24-hour lepomis fever.

Late this afternoon, I took a garden fork to the worm bin. I was again amazed to find a bin full of worms. I don't know how they survive being frozen solid for several months, but I'm sure glad they know how to do it.

Hmmm... I'm guessing a few may have tried to catch a fish or died trying!

I grabbed a handful of the worms, and I used them in an attempt to entice anything that was swimming in the pond. There were schools of medium size bluegill, and bass of all sizes, just lazing right near the surface. I guess the fish were so happy to have a really warm and sunny day, they weren't interested in a gormet snack.

All I got was two lethargic LMBs (8-inch and 11-inch). The rest of the fish just ignored me completely.

Burger -- I now just call them all "worms."

As with everything, the more I learn, the less I know. I thought redworms, aka red wigglers/red wrigglers, were just that. \:\)

Not long ago, I found that most of what we refer to as "Lumbricus Rubellus" are actually "Eisenia Foetida."

I guess we now need a substitute for RWTCOW!

My friends are poaching from me!



Sometime last week my chickens (and Mr. Rooster) learned how get the cover off of my main worm bin. Between Friday and Sunday they ate several thousand worms!

I'm always amazed at how much I still have to learn about worms. This morning's children's sermon at church was supposed to use worms to teach about leading a clean life.

Our pastor brought in four jars and some worms from his garden.

The first batch of worms was put into a jar with some alcohol.

The second batch of worms was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The third batch of worms was put into a container of chocolate syrup.

The fourth batch of worms was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the service, our pastor called the kids back up front and they examined the jars.

The worms in alcohol- Dead

The worms in cigarette smoke - Dead

The worms in chocolate syrup - Dead

The worms in good clean soil - Alive.

So the pastor asked the kids -

What did you learn from this lesson???

Little Charlotte quickly raised her hand and said,

'As long as you drink, smoke, and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'

That pretty much ended the service. And I learned a little more about murdering worms.

Cat

Ordered some Euro Crawlers last week based on some forum advice here and the proprietor indicated for my zone they would perform better. I don't know about that - I was going to order Red Wigglers but he talked me out of it. I'll take some pics of my bin and the crawlers asap and appreciate your guidance to this point.
