A buddy O mine came back to the Bull City(Durham NC) with some bloodworms from baltimore that were as fat as UHHHHHH a FIRST grade pencil .The worms were not in their normal grass.These boogers were in a liquid solution .This liquid seems to make them live longer too. My buddy said that the lady at the bait shop was pretty tight lipped about the solution and would only smile when asked what it was!
Anybody know what's up? Please let me know.

Saline Solution

Bull City...Those bloods may have been shipped from Tochterman's in Baltimore. They get their shipment from Maine every Friday or Saturday (not sure what day) and remove them from the grass and prep them in a saline solution. I always buy my bloods there as they are hand picked and packaged. They are packed in paper towels that have been dipped in the saline and then put into a small cardboard box.. You'll never find any grass in their worms. When you buy a dz. they open the package and show you each worm. That's how much care they take. Their worms are big but as big a 1st. grader pencil is a giant. Sure you weren't looking a sandwormswhich they also prepare. These are usually sold in the solution. Hope this helps.

Old Salt...Yep, Dee IS the lady. I'm stopping by there tomorrow morning to pick up a Penn rod I had repaired. They are a class act in every way. I can't tell you how many times that people have asked where did I get bloods like that. They've been my tackle shop for at least 25 yrs.

There's a bait shop on the Eastern shore that sells them that way in liquid, I asked the owner about it and he told me that it was salt water,then his next question was what was the PH level of the water they live in,so your liquid is salt water and they do stay alive longer.

There was a small ad/article in this weeks Fisherman for Taylored Tackle in Del. that this new packaging for bloodworms keeps them alive for 2-3 weeks. Didn't go into details re the liquid but hyped it pretty well. been a long while since I bought bloods...is the price any different?

Blood Worm Co$t

I was paying $6.75 a dz. for quality bloods this summer. Not a bad price when you get 12 quality worms.

My bait shop has to order a minimum of 10,000 worms. That should be just about enough for Anthony and Jason for one a their marathons.:D

Orest is right. I have the same ones from Island and it's been 1.5 weeks and they're still alive. The ones in the grass die in less than a week. Not sure how some bait shops keep those they have in grass alive if they don't sell out??
