Fishing with Red Wiggler Worms or Eisenia Foetida

When fishing using Red Wiggler worms or Eisenia Foetida for fishing worms, there are many things to take into consideration in order to have the most efficient and enjoyable fishing experience ever. Commonly, When you are about to fish, you use hooks, get a worm and thread it along. The key strategy here is that you have to use fishing worms which are as long as your hook. This way, your hook won’t have obvious apparent parts when it goes into the water- so that fishes can’t tell that there's something fishy with the fishing worms. Don't use worms that are too long also, so that your worm bait doesn’t appear like it is strangling or part of it is stuck- the bait won't look natural to those fishes.

Like considering Red Wigglers for organic fertilizers production, You also have to consider the type and the size of the fish you're trying to catch. If the fish is too big, you have to use relatively big hooks with big fishing worms on it. You can use any kinds of fishing worms with the small ones. The worms you use must look perfectly natural under water, which means that you have to fool the fish into biting the worms on the hook. This can be only done by attaching the fishing worms in a way that neither the hook nor the worm would look suspicious to the fish. For example, don’t put dead fishing worms on your hook; the fish won’t go anywhere near your hook and using weak worms won't attract any fish at all.
