You cannot freeze ragworm as it turns to mush when defrosted, however you can freeze lug indefinitely. keith

dont advise it mate as you can not freeze rag worm as it kills them and they lose that wriggling allure

If they are still alive but your not able to use them up on another fishing trip try to get down the beach and let them go. If they have started to get a bit stinky and life less flush them down the bog. But dont tell the misses ;)

if freezing is no good would something like salting work? I'm looking for a way to preserve bait as well, dont mind passing it on but if you can preserve it for those lean times in the winter great.

tight lines all
