Fishing with Dog Poo Worms

If I want to fish with worms from my dog poo bin, do I need to wash them first? I assume they are covered in dog poo germs since they have been living in and eating dog poo.

Re: fishing with dog poop worms
by: Stephan

Hello Christine,

we have had a lot of fishermen using our worms raised in dog poop worm farms and can't recall anyone of them wanting to wash the worms before fishing. I don't think it would do any harm to wash them for a little while in a tub with clean pond water (shouldn't have any chlorine). Remember that the worms will be under water once on the hook.

If you are concerned about germs on your hands I suggest you wear some dishwashing gloves when you handle the worms, although that might become a little tricky when you want to place them on the hook.

I personally have often fished myself with dog poop bin worms and never experienced any health issues.

Kind regards and enjoy your fishing
