Salting to Preserve Worms
A lot of talk always goes on about what is the best way to keep lugworm alive for use as bait.Realistically you can only keep lugworm alive for a few days to a week at most,and this invloves constantly changing water,paper,removing dead ones etc. The alternative most commonly used method is to nip the heads of the worms,gut them by sliding your fingers along them,and then freezing them.This method does work but personally fishing with a few bits of skin on my hook has never been one of my favourites.
A simple alternative is to go back to the pre-freezer and fridge days when various fishes and meats were salted to dry out the moisture and allow perishable foodstuffs to keep for much longer.
You'll need a few bags of cheap salt from the supermarket and a tub such as an empty 2 litre ice cream container.
And this is how I do it. First you need some nice fresh lugworm,and wash them off.
