  • keeping casters fresh

    how can i keep casters in tip top condition for a following weeks fishing i remember some one telling me to keep them in a coffe jar with some cling film on top and put it in the fridge. but do you add water to it. or i would imagin your pellet pump would do the same thing.

      Come on Nathan you cannot be serious!

      Just freeze them! Or alternatively just buy maggots one week and turn the spares for the next week to caster!

        Yeh, I freeze them for carp but no good for silvers and not worth doing if you only want to keep them a few days.

          They do work for roach after freezing. but need to change the water a couple of times or you'll get black finger nails.
          I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
          He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

            Yes,freezing is best, but freeze them in water and not dry in the bag! use a old ice cream tub and cover them a few inches over,you can also add your favourite flavour at this point and this will stop any odour from them!

                i freez them Without water ! no probs at all i have found freezing them in water makes them soft or softer not the best way for hook bait personally speaking ofcourse!
                I also keep them for longer than a week in water in the fridge without any probs...................

                      Put them in a brown paper bag then put them into a plastic bag this stops the casters getting burnt shells then freeze them m8,or if you are not allowed to put them in the freezer get a bait tub put damp news paper on the top then a plastic bag over the top of that then put your bait lid on so no air gets in,change the news paper daily with more damp news paper.

                          I was always told to fill an airtight container brim full of casters, cover with cling film, replace the container lid and then keep in the fridge - always worked for me (when I could afford casters!)
