The European Nightcrawler is truly an amazing earthworm.
It's tough, durable, and active.
This worm stays on the hook longer, stays active longer, and stays alive longer under water than any other worm. The European Nightcrawler is larger than the Red Worm but smaller than the Canadian Nightcrawler (which can be TOO big), making them the ideal bait worm.
One big advantage over the Canadian is the European Nightcrawler requires no refrigeration.
They're also tougher and much more active than other types of fishing worms.
European's will keep alive and healthy in the cup from 3-5 weeks.
At 60 degrees, they'll keep even longer. In beds, they do well in temperatures ranging from 50 to 90 degrees and can tolerate temperatures much higher or lower if their bedding is of the proper depth and moisture content.
