Default Beach Worms

Hey guys, Cuda here. I recently read about these beach worms, and they are supposed to be awesome bait for whiting. Can you catch them here in Navarre?

What is the name of the worms? There are a number of worm species in the sand. Acorn, peanut worm, sand worm, lugworm are a few common names.

Just my .02, but if going after whiting, good shrimp works fine. I buy shrimp from a seafood store, and not the older bait shrimp, but the eatin' kind. Pull off the head, peel and bait up!

We have lugworms (Arenicola) here. Look for holes in the sand that connect their U shaped burrow and worm casts. Their casts look like sand that is coiled. I'm not sure how easy they would be to find this time of year but definitely dig for them during low tide. Buying the shrimp as suggested by devinsdad is a lot easier. If you decide to dig it sounds like a good trip to take the family on a nice day and let the kids dig for them.

Up in Virginia, they used blood and sand worms. The sand worm was way better (and fatter) than the blood worm. Also, I know that shrimp and squid works like wonder around here. In Virginia, it will take all day to just to catch a couple whitings on shrimp or squid. Most folks there caught croaker on worms. So, I would just stick with shrimp......

Okay I'll mainly stick to shrimp. But when I can find them I'll try to pick up some worms.

now, as for flounder.....bull minnows is the way to go for sure. then the other is the fish belly strip...bait it and jig it at the bottom and they will take it.
