Chuck had been out on the ice all day without seeing a single fish. Not even a nibble. He decides that today’s not the day and starts to pack up, when this old guy walks up.
Without saying a word, he cuts a hole a few feet from Chuck and immediately catches a fish.
The old guy coughs, baits his hook, and within seconds, there’s another fish on his line. This happens two, three times within as many minutes.
Chuck can’t believe his eyes. He’s been out here all day without seeing a single fish. He walks over to the man and asks, “What’s your secret?”
“Woohattakipowrmwm” the old man answers back.
“What did you say?” replies Chuck.
The man looks over, spits out a mouthful of worms on the ice and says, ”You have to keep your worms warm.”
