Worm Tea From Worm Castings, and more!

Updated on January 6, 2011

What do you get out of Raising Worms for Fishing? Clearly, you get to raise worms for fishing.

Raising Worm Farms

When you’re raising a worm farm, you either reap two results out of it. One is to produce a good source of organic fertilizer. The second one is to produce live fishing bait.

Setting-up your Worm Farm

You’re going to have to choose what kind of container to use for your fishing worms new habitat. So your choices can vary to different sizes of plastic bags, from a plastic pool for kids, to different gallons of ice cream buckets, to old refrigerators. So, make sure to leave the container that you’ve finally settled for, outside of your house. Apart from that, you’re also going to have to make drainage holes for this as well. But only puncture small holes (you can use nails for this) so that your worms will not wriggle out of the container.

What to put inside your Worm Bin

You can also add in some soil, but make sure that it’s not grimy or pebbly. But you can always opt to use soil that has clay content to it, and is of a brown color. Other than soil, you’ll also need to put in some food for your live fishing worms. You can always mix into the soil organic wastes such as fruit and vegetable scraps, grass clippings, dry leaves, crushed egg shells, some newspaper shreds, and a few coffee grounds. Make sure to feed them at least twice a month.

Water is also an essential ingredient when raising worms for fishing: worm farm. You’re going to have to use this to keep your soil moist. Now your soil should not be soaking wet as this might lead to mold build-ups, or may cause for your worms to drown and die later.

Things to remember

  • When putting tea bags inside the bin, don't forget to always remove the staple
  • Avoid removing critters from your worm bin. Critters help in the vermicomposting process. However, Centipedes (which are carnivores) should always be removed because they will eat your little worms and your worm eggs!
  • Do not add dairy products, meat, eggs or any food that is too oily into your bin

Your type of Worms

When raising fishing worms, you should be able to use nightcrawlers or the garden worms kind. But you can also use red wiggler worms for this specific venture. You’ll be able to find the perfect fishing bait underneath piles of leaves, under rocks, clippings from grass, or under the ground (you’re going to have to do some digging for this one). Or if you fail to find any, then you can always choose to buy from local bait shops nearby.


Raising worms for fishing is something that you can also make a profit from. There will always be a big demand for worms as live bait, since fishing is staple for a lot of fishermen. For other alternatives, you can also sell your worms to other commercial breeders or worm dealers. This venture is definitely an investment worth putting up.
