Decided to get back into fishing and started a worm bed last year. Buried an old recycling bin that is about 2' deep. Our compost bin is full of red worms if you dig down to the bottom so I put a bunch of those in there. We get pretty cold winters here so wondering if the worms will still be alive. It was a mild winter, but the frost line frequently gets down that far if not more. Anybody think my worms are still alive? For filler I used shredded newspapers, soil, compost, and a little horse manure. Not so sure I like the red worms though. They never got all that big. Would nightcrawlers be better? I think maybe so. Can I just add them in with the red worms or should I start over? If it matters mainly we catch crappie, blue gill, bullhead, and catfish.
