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.

Mush, I understand. Never tried though.

You can salt them. Have a look at Codhead Bob's website for instructions - works for rag as well as lug.It's PondLife, Jim. But not as we know it...

No mate you can't. Although I always keep a supply of blacks, peeler, squid and mackeral freezed for those impromptu sessions.SUNSET and evening star,
And one clear call for me!

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!!

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 learnedBoooorn Freeeeeeee till Somebodyyyy Caught Meeeee
(if you need to ask, its not funny)

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.
