Seaworms... Where's a good place to find them? When I was a kid, my uncle would take my cousins and I flounder fishing at Black's Harbour. I would love to take
my own kids flounder fishing, and we always used seaworms. Thing is, I love to beachcomb and I often dig for clams and other critters, but only have ever found little seaworms, nothing like the big nasty monsters we used when we were kids! What kind of beach substrate am I looking for? My uncle was the one who got the bait, and we always had to wait in the car while he dug worms. I think we were in around Maces Bay though. I'm talking over 30 years ago now, hard to recall!

If you plan on using them right up that day. Put them or take one of them and put it in fresh water. They get bigger or swell up an old guy used to get the small ones down home and drop them in fresh water when they would swell up for him to put them on a hook.

I'm not dfo but you can dig them for bait there is a lic for worms but its only exploratory...not much interest they go for about 15cents each and they have to be blood worms...sand worms and all outhers are fair game i belive
