Where to find worms for bait?

Q. How can you get lots of worms for bait?

A. As a kid in the Midwest, I would dig them up in moist soil.  I learned quickly that digging up the house yard would get me in big trouble with my parents, although that was often the easiest digging.  Getting the bait was half the fun of fishing as a kid, but I take the easy way out these days and buy a dozen or two at the local tackle store for a few bucks.  Less of a mess and it keeps me from getting grounded by my wife for tearing up the yard!

  1. As a kid, my friends and I used to pick nightcrawlers off neighborhood lawns, our high school football field, and at a local golf course. Only 4 or 5 nights work kept us in bait for the entire summer!
