    Can you Freeze Ragworm?

    Can Ragworm be frozen then defrosted and used? or does it just turn to mush.
    Ive found an excellent site for King Rag.

    You can salt them. Have a look at Codhead Bob's website for instructions - works for rag as well as lug.

    And one clear call for me!
    And may there be no moaning of the bar,

    If you boat-fish in an area where there are shoals of black bream, frozen mushy rag can be an incredible bait. Accidental discovery I made over 10 years ago. The bream were queuing up to hit it!!

    Well Chaps , I can honestly say YES they can .

    What you do is simple , get your rag & some newspaper & salt .

    Lay one out , salt it roll & repeat . The more salt the tougher the rag .

    They do however go to mush if frozen balled up together with no salt .

    As I was skint when I first started fishing again , this was one of the first tricks I learned
    Boooorn Freeeeeeee till Somebodyyyy Caught Meeeee

    (if you need to ask, its not funny)

    Thumbs up

    This year so far I have had Plaice, Red Mullet, Pouting, whiting, codling all on frozen rag. People laughed at me until I had the codling.

    I dont use salt, just peat.

    Put the rag in peat with lots of paper and freeze. When you want to use them just take them out of the freezer and thaw thoroughly. They stay on the hook and stink, which is nice.

    DONT FREEZE THEM IN SAND AS THEY WILL GO MUSHY.
