How to Treat your Bait

Treat your bait like Gold. When you are going to freeze your fresh bought bait, you must do it the right way. We all know how dreadful mushy bait can be. The reason some frozen bait is better than others is because of the way it is frozen. If you put the bait on a cookie sheet so that they are not touching each other, the bait will adhere to the hook like fresh bait, when thawed. If the bait is stuffed in a bag , rubbing on each other, they will freeze at a slow and uneven rate. That kind of bait, when thawed, feeds the crabs and gives us the crabbys .......... Please practice catch and release.
