Get a doble page of newspaper and roll up the first worm straight the add the second worm and so on, up to 10 worms can be wrapped this way.

Fold over the ends of the wrapped worms and place in the freezer.

Or select 5 wrapps and wrapp them all together.

Yes mate, sometimes refrozen lug especially when smelly can on occasions outfish fresh bait because of the strong scent thats given off.

I have never tried preserving lug by any method but from articles I have read I believe that salting them first would be a better alternative unless they are Black lug.

The only problem with salting them is that they de-hydrate like old leather bootlaces and are difficult to put on the hook.

They do swell and absorb water after about 5 min but I prefer freezing.
