A Bait Bag For Carrying Live Worms

What? You’ve never heard of a bait bag for carrying live worms? Well, take a few minutes to read this article and you’ll hear about how a bait bag can save you a ton of time and make carrying your live worms a ton more convenient. Now you may not think that carrying live worms around in the container you purchase them in is that big of a problem, and if you don’t move around much while fishing, you’d be right. The problem comes in for those of us who like to move around a lot while fishing. Either wading up and down a river or moving from spot to spot along the bank of a stream or lake. For those of us who move while fishing, carrying around a container full of live worms is not only a pain in the butt, but also a big time waster.

One day, my fishing mentor devised a solution to this problem. He fashioned a small bag out of some felt and created the first bait bag. It was simply a small bag that he safety pinned to his fishing vest, and he would transfer live worms from the container he bought them in to the bait bag while he fished. Then, whenever he needed a worm, they were right there at his fingertips. He discovered that the worms would just sit there and wait to be used. They didn’t even try to crawl out.

I always thought this was an ingenious idea, and soon made my own version to use. That was over 20 years ago, and I can’t even imagine fishing with live worms without the help of my bait bag. My bait bag has become as much a part of my fishing gear as my hooks and weights are. A bait bag is bay far the best way that I’ve ever seen, to carry live worms while fishing.

The bottom line is that if you use live worms for fishing, and tend to be on the move a lot while fishing, you should give a bait bag a try. There is no need to waste time searching for where you stuck your worms and then fumbling around with that stupid container if you begin employing a bait bag for carrying your live worms while fishing. You can purchase one for a few bucks that will last you for years or you can make one yourself. The point is that you should begin using a bait bag sooner rather than later. You’ll wonder how you ever fished without one, I promise you that.
