ive dug a few up on mud flats and marsh banks in some of the back bays but theyre always pretty small, there are different kinds of worms out there that most people dont even know about, google clam worms, a lot of shops used to sell these and they are as good for bait as they are nasty to deal with

We used to dig them up during low tide at the beach in Long Branch when I was a kid. No idea if they are still there though.

Use to dig blood and tape worms on the west side of Morgan inlet at low tide. Look for bubbles in the wet sand.

Same as most everyone posted find your honey hole at a low tide (outgoing best) gives you more time. Bring a pitchfork and have at it. If digging in an approved clamming area get a license and get some clams also. Adding that in as it is illegal to even harvest bait clams without a license. Or even pick them up off the beach/wash/surf.

They tend to like difernt type of mud then sands my buddy digs them all the time and nice ones and those long tape worms make good stripped bassbait also

Tapeworm is probably the best early season striper bait on the planet.
