CATCHALL CRAWLERS IN PUNNETS:
These worms are new to commercial production in Australia with Kookaburra Worm Farms being one of the first and certainly the largest producers. These worms have an enviable reputation throughout Europe and the America's as being one of the finest fishing bait worms available.
Don't be fooled by their medium size or their stripey red colouring. These are definetly not overgrown Tigers. They are scientifically called the Eisenia Hortensis or Dendrobaena Veneta.
We have done extensive fishing trials with these worms and have consistently caught far greater numbers and varieties of fish. One controlled trial showed that African Night Crawlers caught 2 fish, Cod worms caught 6 fish and the Catchalls caught 36 fish, using 2 identically rigged rods, fished in the same spot over the same period of time.
These worms have a very tough skin, similar to Scrubbies and can be kept in refirgeration for up to 3 months to extend their shelf life.
Unlike Scrubbies, these worms are sustainably bred by us and are therefore available all year round.
These worms are only currently available in wholesale bait packs.
COD WORMS IN PUNNETS: (NOT AVAILABLE)
We are the only worm farm in Australia that can now supply Cod Worms in commercial quantities.
The Cod Worms are an Australian native worm and are therefore prefered by many of the Australian native fish. Commonly caught species include Murray Cod, Yellow Belly/Callop, Australian Bass, Silver Perch, Jade Perch/Barcoo Grunter, Blackfish, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout.
Cod Worms (Coddies) are one of the BEST fishing worms in Australia. They are larger than the African's, and we reckon better than the Scrubbies, and all our worms are sustainably grown by us!
