Good chance it's bluegills nipping at the worm. They will hit worms bigger than they are.

The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn’t someone else’s gift to you? –Lee Wulff

Could be smaller bass, sunnies, perch, etc. Sometimes I've casted to an area numerous times and finally landed the fish I think was nibbling. Its been all the above.
Short strikes can be annoying, but are part of the game.

The sunfish wouldn't leave even a 10" worm alone for me on Thursday. It was even worse when I tried a Senko.

When this is happening to me, try wacky rigging it if you can without getting snags. It seems to work for me, just having it rigged a different way can make a huge difference.
