How are the Berkley artificial worms vs. Real nightcrawlers?

I finally picked up a package for half off at the local kmart and going to try them later this week trolling behing a spinner. I waste too many of the live buggers so I thought what the heck, see what happens.

I have had good luck with the fake ones, under a bobber and even out on its own. I have nailed some cats, trout, crappie and a bass on them. I still like real worms better.

You really can't beat the real thing.
Theres no comparison between the water induced movement on the artificials compared to the real *GET ME OFF OF THIS HOOOOOOK!!!!* movement of a crawler. ;)

There salt water stuff is awesome. They have Gulp bloodworms, crabs, baitfish, all this stuff works great. I'll take a fake blood worm over the real thing any day.

I have tried The Berkley Gulp worms and they do not work as good as real.

LMAO, I heard he's afraid of those things. ;D My dad use to make me put those things on myself when I like 8yrs old. I got bit and that's all she wrote there. No more blood worms for this kid.

I have used the berkley gulp night cralwer in Red and brown and have done well at iron canyon res for trout trolling. They stay on well and have a natual look in the water.

Has anyone tried those neon green crawlers?

Not get off the subject but has anyone seen these nuclear worms. It looks like a blood worm but a little bigger, about 3 feet long bigger.:o They come from Thailand or someplace like that and they don't bite. I've got buddy who owns a tackle store in HB and he showed me one of these things. A 3ft blood worm looking thing, hell no!

I HAVE used the neon green crawlers- I honestly didnt notice much difference- but the day that I used them was one when anything you threw out would hook something- so I dont really have an accurate testimonial...
I think you can buy the bedding for crawlers that contains the dyed castings...or something that they eat that will turn them nuke green...
now we need firetiger nightcrawlers... ;)

Tried the fake ones by berkeley, glad they were 50% off, maybe its too late in the year to see if they really work. One thing is for sure, they will go in my "last resort" bag on the boat.

...One thing is for sure, they will go in my "last resort" bag on the boat.


...Which points out one of the great advantages of these manufactured worms: They last a long time without special care.

Hey fishguts,
Dont count out those Berkley Power Worms. They were the hot ticket at Amador last year. Go to the search function and look up Power worms or Power Mouse and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I've used the Gulp worms with pretty good success (I usually just pinch off a portion and thread it on the hook). However, if you don't take the "worm" off the hook at the end of the day, it turns to leather - needed needlenose pliers to remove the old worm on my next trip out.
