Anglers: Rainy morning prime for hunting nightcrawlers

FISHING -- Get your lard outta bed! Fishing season opens Saturday, but this morning is a prime opportunity to stock up on nightcrawlers. Rain has forced them out of the ground and onto the street where they're easy pickin's.  

Robins are on the prowl, but many of these choice bait morsels will be victims to car tires if you don't salvage them first.

I actually rescued a few and put them in my garden plot.  It was like draft day for tomato soil conditioners.
