Have you ever considered directing all this energy that you exert on weird little hobbies and projects to something a little more rewarding?

I recommend girls.

Never raised nightcrawlers, but these served me well with my bigger fish:

Dave,

I once had an aluminum tub under the house, covered with a round sheet of plywood for my Nightcrawlers.

I kept them in the crawlspace as they had a habit of getting out of the tub while in the house and I found them all over the place.  Dead and stiff.

It is a lot of work and expense.  Plus the fact that your mom will go bonkers when they invade your parents' bedroom.

You can buy two-dozen Nightcrawlers at Wal-Mart for under $3 and I suggest getting them there.

Unless you can put them in a safe place where the wild animals can't get to them and they won't get loose and invade your house.  ;D

Yo Dave. My Dad was into this for awhile. He had a 4' square wooden box in the basement. Almost like a compost box. For some reason I remember him putting shredded up newspaper as well as all the table scraps in there. I can get more info if you want...

I had that same problem of worms getting out, when i tired to raise them. I got a paper clip and made an M out of the end of it to brand them, for identity reasons. After branding they did not seem to move around too much after they stopped flopping about ;D

Thats a good idea! A local worm rancher recently came up short a dozen head of nightcrawlers at his annual worm roundup. He believes it to be the work of worm rustlers!

I go out to the parks here in town and get them at night during the spring and summer. On a nice damp cool summer night I can catch 100 plus in a couple hours time. They hang half way out of there holes you just have to be fast and grab them and gently pull them out.  Then get some worm bedding at any outdoors store or even maybe walmart and a worm box and follow the directions. I have a few hundred crawlers now but I don't use them for fishing much anymore.

You have to have more free time than anyone.  I'm convinced you could bring world peace in a couple of months if you would drop everything and pursue nothing else.

Dont listen to these guys. Hey I dont see anything wrong with having a bunch of hobbies. Girls just get you into trouble and take up all your fishing time. As far as raising night crawlers goes, I cant help much. Just make sure whatever you decide to use to house your crawlers is out of direct sunlight. Also use a nutrient rich topsoil when setting up your night crawler habitat.
