Someone told me this is pudding worm. But I am fairly sure its not. Prove me wrong?

What are they called and do fish eat them? Was pumped with some mud prawn in Saldanha Bay.

Thanks!

Don't know your worm, but it is definately not "Puding Worm".

Probably "blood worm"

yip like Oom said..bloodworm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PyAFVb2Af4

you nipped the tail section off..must do a rondomtallie or 360 at sharp angles in same hole to get the rest of worm out or stick your hand in and feel for worm

sometimes they lay horizontal or vertical in hole.. soo sometimes you pump whole worm if vertical meaning you pull from tail section..otherrs lay horizontal and pump placed above middle or end of worm leaving you with those 2 pieces

best way to avoid that is wire technique to hold worm in place then pump close to it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wInyESZ5Ic

Not to sure that is bloodworm. We also managed to get some in Saldanha between the prawn and genuine bloodworm.
They do work as bait, we managed to catch black tail and stumps on them in Saldanha.

I won’t say it’s bloodworm. I don’t think it has broken neither.
If bloodworm breaks you will notice tendrils of inner flesh and lots of bloody liquid oozing from the bloodworm.
Bloodworm have more body on them and attached are small hair like appendages on the thicker section, the tail or arse end is normally quite hard due to its sandy content and of a different color to the main body of the worm.

I have seen this type of worm in Knysna while pulling bloodworm although it’s not popularly found. I have found this type of worm in the Breede river mouth too.

Recently I completed a survey sent out by some students in KZN ( I think) to identify and name different worm found on our coastline and river estuaries, I will have look for the email and link it to this thread.
Many local worm are called different names the survey trying to establish common names used.

Further reading on this site ...... and ....wait for it .......useful tools are the “SEARCH” function....... or go to “Bait Presentations”.

To all Fishermen

My research team and I are investigating the usage of common names as they are applied to polychaete worms that are used for bait. We therefore invite you to participate in a survey: Marine worms used as bait for sea fishing.


Click here;

https://sunsurveys.sun.ac.za/Marine-worms-used-as-bait-for-sea-fishing.aspx?i=60b7e2f9bffb4fa98aaddc5526d23c0e

to take the survey.


The information collected will be used to develop an identification guide and to gain consensus among fishermen and academics alike, as to what the worms are called.

We greatly appreciate your help.

Regards

I posted the same photos on Saltfishing SA. Around 5 people identified it as Kannietjies or Blood Kannietjies. It's definitely not bloodworm. Fish do seem to love it though.

That's what the Swartkops locals call "Bloed Kannatjies". Its different to Bloodworm. Hate using the Kannetjies because its obviously a bit more time consuming getting the bait presentation correct because its essentially like baiting up a small balloon filled with blood. Its pops and the blood spills out - which explains why the chokka combo works better.
