Preserving it , same as pslatarix but without the brine , tupperware container with newspaper at the bottom with a healthy dose of coarse salt .....Happy Hunting

Thought i'd share my Zim Bop !
Agree 100%, this way allows you to dig slowly and thereby not damage the worms.

Great piece of Info((goodp_

Just wanted to know, what are the bag limit for this type of bait, I am stil new to all the regulations on Bait?


On last look at regulations you're only allowed 10 per day.

I also preserve worms in a mix of salt and maize meal.Ratio 1:10.This way it lasts for more than a year and in dry state easier to put on hook.
