I'm a firm believer (without scientific studies to back up my "belief) that if you feed your redworms a grain

definition of that word) that fish would prefer grain based smelly guts to fruits based smelly guts?
Anybody want to do a scientific test?

your redworms. Big plastic cut in half either way Pits in the ground dug 18 inches or so with good drainage. Old
When growing redworms learn everything about raising them you can. If you make a mistake learn from that and try
again. I made my share of mistakes when I fisrt started but I did not give up.
