Chris makes a good point that one might quckly overlook. Live, those little squirmy things induce just about anything
to eat. My darters eat the frozen bloodworms and glassworms after a few
days as they have 'trained' darters with them to learn it from. When I
had darters fresh from the wild with no "trained" ones, I fed live
Blackworms and they couldn't eat enough. Once they were eating they took
the frozen stuff too. Small, whole red wigglers might do the trick
too...the key is in the squiggle...
