I do the nighttime "flashlight spot & grab" for nightcrawlers.

My dad used to water the grass until there were puddles in the yard or go
out after a rainfall after dark & make us kids do the grabbing while he did
all the spotting-I believe we were much closer to the ground & easier to
hose off afterwards! He made us girls' believe it's "cool" to catch

Unfortunately the ground in Ohio freezes during the winter months & I have
to "drive & purchase" them!

I'm proud to be a grabber! Thanks Dad.

I've seen people use nightcrawler sticks also. They send electricity into
the damp night ground and the earthworms 'magically' surface. Then you can
spot 'em & grab 'em!
