    Buying live worms?

    Ok whatever ... I never said I was certain about anything if you read my post I said "IF they are the same species" In any case they are heaps similair this is a photo of a terrestrial genus Lumbricus It looks almost exactly the same as a seaweed worm. I still think you could POSSIBLY (not definitely) catch YFW on these it's not like they know biology. but maybe it would smell different enough that they wouldn't take it. worth a try though, nothing to lose and if it works then getting bait for YFW would become a hell of a lot easier and cheaper. just throwing it out there

    Buying live worms?

    No they don't keep well at all. if you want to use them live you have to use them pretty much straight away. if you have an aerator you can maybe keep them alive for a couple days.

    Buying live worms?

    Could be, but I think it would be strange to put garden worms in brackets if they potentially belong to a completely different order, family, genus and species. So what is the Genus and species of seaweed worms? I have not been able to find that information anywhere.

    Buying live worms?

    I don't think so if they are the same species then they are the exact same animal, doesn't matter the environment they are found in they have the same characteristics. gents don't turn to mush or die instantly when they hit saltwater yet they haven't 'evolved' to specifically live in a saline environment (not that I believe in that...). here is the document by the way (NRM not PIRSA my bad) www.naturalresources.sa.gov.au/files/sharedassets/northern_and_yorke/coast_and_marine/yp_2014_assets_-_part_2_-_marine_ecological_assets_-_section_5_-_mudflats_and_sandflats.pdf doesn't have the scientific species name but on page 10 last sentence of the paragraph says

    Buying live worms?

    I recently read a PIRSA document that says seaweed worms are the same species as garden worms. So I'm wondering if you could just dig garden worms and get YFW with them By the way the easiest way to get worms is to dig under your compost pile if you have one. I can get worms in about 2 minutes from my backyard just by digging where my compost pile is.

    Buying live worms?

    Ray Annes, when I lived in the suburbs they never failed me. They should have all those worms, don't know about nightcrawlers though. You're better off learning to get you're own bait though, buying worms becomes expensive very quickly. It's also very satisfying when you learn how to obtain a new bait source, it's like learning to catch a new species of fish

    Rod/line squid

    who needs Snapper when you got Ocean Jackets, just ask Tim Whetstone haha true victoria has better natural resources than us as does probably every other state but at least we don't get fined for going 1-2km over the speed limit.

    I have found that the size of mature specimens can vary a lot by location. so ideal hook size may vary but what determines hook size for me is what I'm fishing for. For YFW I use hook size of 6-8 so if the nippers are small it would be better to use an 8 and if they are larger a 6. they can be tricky to put on a hook especially if they are small they almost disintegrate when you put the hook through them. I go through the back of the tail and out through the front so they are still alive. from what I've read they are a premium bait that almost any fish would take. I've caught a garfish on a nipper before

    little jack sayoris-z 99

    prefer to get one in a local store because postage would make it expensive. The scene doesn't appear to have them. I want it for LB snook. seems like it might work well on them since they feed on the gar

    I thought trout are a fall and winter species, or can you catch them all year round?

    DIY flounder spear

    thanks for that. keen to give it a crack soon. I think there are some flounder grounds up north near me where you are allowed to spear fish. Gars would be a bonus!
