Live Blood Worms are the premium bait when chasing Winter or Summer Whiting, when you want the best fish you need the best bait available.
We keep in stock (Weather and Tides pending) a great supply of Fresh Local Live Blood Worms and you can even book your Bait in advance to ensure they are there when you need them!
Tackle Land Sandgate is the major supplier of Live Blood Worms on Brisbane’s Northside! https://www.facebook.com/432818376772331/videos/706514086469831/
Not sure how to use these as Bait, well it is pretty straight forward. I normally use a Mustad Bait-holder longshank #4 or #6 and a small Ball Sinker about #1 or #2 and for effect I will use a small piece (about 6cm long) of either Traditional “Red” or “Fluro Pink” Tubing.
I will cut a piece of Blood Worm approximately 2-3cm long and simply thread it straight onto the hook leaving about 3-5mm of worm after the hook. If i am not using “Bait-holder” hooks I will slide the worm over the knot at the top just to help stop the worm sliding to the base of the shaft.
If you are fishing with kids, just remember that these worms Bite! An incident like this can give kids really bad memories and may even put them off fishing, so please explain to them before they find out by accident!
If the kids are new to fishing we have a great little article on fishing with kids that might just save you some grief! https://tackleland.com.au/kids-fishing-basics/

LIVE BLOOD WORM CARE
Keep Us at Our Best
To keep your Blood Worms at their peak, please follow these guide lines:
• Keep us “Cool” we like to be kept at about 18 degrees.
• Keep us out of the direct sunlight as we don’t have ears to hang our sunnies on!
• Change our Sea Water twice a day if you are going to travel with us or keep us for a few days.
• We would love a larger container if we are going to stay for a while..
• Pick the older or dead ones first, it keeps our water cleaner and us healthier.
• Please don’t take us out of the “containment Zone”

At the end of your trip or days outing you find that you have left over bait, don’t throw it out, recycle where you can.
You can use “Salt” or most people use “Metho” for preserving their left over bait. I find that Metho is the quicker and easier method for preserving my bait but if I have the time, I find Salting gives me a longer shelf life for my bait.
