Green Worms, What are You Catching?
Every fisherman knows that worms are among the best bait you can use to lure in virtually any type of fish.

What are Green Worms?
No, a new species of worms hasn’t emerged. Green worms are nothing more than your standard bait worms (typically nightcrawlers) that have been dyed green. The dye is vibrant in color, giving the worms an unmistakable hue.
Depending on the type of dye that was used, the worms will retain their green
coloring for about two to three weeks. Changes in their bedding and what they eat can decrease the length of time the green color lasts.
What’s the purpose of the green dye? It does two things:
1. It makes the worms more noticeable. That bright green color is very eye-catching and will draw the attention of fish from miles away.
2. It makes them more nutrient-rich. The more nutrients the worms contain, the more fish are going to be drawn to them.
