I Have In The Past , Never Had Any Trouble Still Caught Off Them I Used To Rap Them In Clingfilm Then Place Them In The Freezer .give It A Go If You Just Use Them As A Top Up Bait Better Than Going To Waste.
I regularly fish with softies, and find them a top bait for flounder and bass, yet I always take the gills out before presenting on the hook. Do you require to remove the gills from softies prior to freezing them ? I've froze lots of peeler yet have never tried with soft crab.
yes they still fish m8t, only a tip 4 ya when freezing any crab,
softties or peelers- i keep 2 steel plates in the freezer all the time &
i put the crabs between them 2 freeze, this makes them freeze much faster
& stops them crystlizing (like a fast freeze) this way u have no probs with mushy crab when u defrost them
