FISHING -- This soggy weather sends a lot of people indoors. But serious angler know the saturated ground forces worms out of the ground, making this a ripe time to stock up on nightcrawlers for the next fishing trip.

You'll find worms onthe streets and sidewalks. 

The best fun is going out with a kid for short nightcrawler hunts.  No license required, and  no limits to worry about.

All you need is a flashlight or headlamp and a can or bucket.  Make it an adventure, even if you don't fish.
