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:
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!
