Green, But a No-Glo on Worm Powder

Following up on yesterday’s challenge: We put a teaspoon of Worm-Glo powder into a carton of crawlers, left them 24 hours, then opened the lid to find:

Green crawlers!

It worked!

Well, mostly…

Based on the label, Worm-Glo, we were led to believe our daring crawlers would not only assume the miraculous, irresistible-to-all-fish color chartreuse, but would in fact glow in the dark.

When we turned out the light, this is what we found, left.

Of course, not shown in this photo–and in fact not presently available via Internet, though I hear Google is close–is the tangy, pungent odor of said crawlers. Nor can a photo relate the fish-attracting vibrations of the worms’ contortions on a hook. Chartreuse, natural, black as night: These are primo baits for Florida catfish, bass and panfish. And last we checked, these fish don’t need a flashlight to find a late-night snack.

It’s Friday afternoon, so bid these brave test worms adieu, for this is the last time you’ll see them. Tomorrow, it’s off to the lake!

    You have to keep the worms in the sun for at leat 8 hour for them to glow. Everyone knows that.

    I've used worm-glo for over a year,it works great.I use it on red wigglers for bass,crappie,blue gills,i've even caught catfish on them.Not only does it turn them green,but makes them bigger and tuffer,whenyou put them on a hook the green comes out and leaves a smell.I caught more fisn on the worm-glo than the regular worms.all in all this is great stuff.
