How to Hook a Bloodworm


Bloodworms make good fishing baits for anglers targeting species like flounders and striped bass. While the worms can range in size from just a couple of inches to a foot or longer, most anglers use just enough worm to cover their hook. Anglers should take particular care when working with bloodworms because they have a mouth on one end of their bodies and can bite.

Things You'll Need

  • Hook
  • Select a straight-shank hook.

  • Cut the worm so it is about a half-inch longer than the hook would be if it were straightened out.

  • Hold the worm so it is vertical. Insert the hook point into the center of the top of the worm.

  • Thread the worm up the shank of the hook.

  • Push the hook point out of the worm so that about a half-inch of the worm hangs off the hook.
