    Default European night crawlers?

    After dividing my beds all new bedding about a month ago this is what I have. The hook is a #6 are these the size they should be for European night crawlers or are they red wrigglers?

    wiggler size. Euros SHOULD be about 3" long, real thick, and really chunky looking.. basically about 50% longer and 3 times thicker than those. I'd take a pic of mine but its pouring down rain and I don't feel like getting wet to go to the worm bins LOL.

    Those could be euros, just really small.. they are almost impossible to tell the difference for the average person.. sometimes euros are a little more darker and purple-ish on the top side. If you had wigglers and euros together, the wigglers will almost always take over.

    Bad news.

    The one on the top left with the spiky tail is a perionyx excavatus, aka blue worm. The others are red wigglers. You can still keep that bin for panfish worms.

    Can you let us know who sold you the worms so we all know who to avoid purchasing worms from? Lots of shady characters in the worm biz.

    Well that's the problem, I had issues with uncle jims too. They are known scammers, you order red wigglers and they ship you an order that has reds and blues mixed together, which is not what you paid for. Blue worms are very brittle and dont make for a very good bait worm.

    I'll pm you a supplier that gives you exactly the worm you pay for- and honest weights too.

    I buy from speedy worm. They are the best bait dealer ive found. The euros i got from them were absolutely huge. Maggots are good, waxies were amazing, crawlers are great.. just a great place to do business with.

    When i use wigglers i put 3-5 on a #6 hook. Big bluegills cant resist a wad of lively wigglers and it keeps the tiny ones away usually
