Wow. I hadn't seen that article.

Yes, that Vibro has wrecked havoc on the Gulf Coast for years. I had read that Vibro mostly attacked people with low immune systems. It also festered in back water sloughs.

Thanks for the warning. richg99

yep - my son-in-law is a shrimper out of Cape Canaveral, FL and he tells some
horror stories of the sea life that can bite, cut or poke you with nasty results.
good post about the lady !! and very sorry to hear of her catastrophic injury.

One of the effective ways to fish worms, is to use half a night crawler. Bury the shank of the hook in the worm and let the hook show. Fish interpret this presentation as a leech and it looks natural in a lake. The way not to fish worms is to wrap one around a hook into a gop.

Live worms! OMG!

What I say about live bait is...."people who use live bait want to catch fish." Ha Ha.

I'm sure you are right.

good grief that would sure suck. Won't stop me from using live bait many times you just can't beat the real thing. Smallie fishing I don't always do it, but one of the best baits has been and always will be live shiners, or craws caught from the body of water their. The ole saying match the hatch why not just use the hatch.

Yeah, for many years, I caught a LOT of speckled sea trout and redfish (saltwater species) using live shrimp. Then, I became "sophisticated" and started using only lures.

I no longer had to wait in lines on a Saturday morning to buy a pint of shrimp for $10.00. Now I get to spend hundreds of dollars on lures that catch a tenth of the fish.

These days, I fish during the week. I can better afford the ten bucks (now probably 12.00). I am rarely in a hurry. My boat has a live well to keep the bait alive.

Hmmmm ... See how sophisticated and smart I've become. Nahhhhhh.

haha hardly a bait shop near that sells any live bait other than gas stations with half dead worms in a little fridge. Thankfully a half mile down the road from me is a little creek plenty plentiful with crawfish, minnows, chubs, and little blue gill I go to when I want some live bait.
