Freezing Yellow Tails

Postby James Mully » 03 May 2019, 10:06

Been looking at filling my freezer for next winter as I got caught short last year and had to fork out for blacks as I could not pump them. Managed 200 Big yellow tails the other day and after speaking to a lad about how to freeze them he advised just sticking a baiting needle through the head and rolling in paper. I did as I was advised but I am not overly happy with them (they will be fine for Dab bait) I plan on gutting them like conventional blacks and rolling in cellophane. What is the best way to dry gutted worms? Just leave on newspaper for a few hours or use some dry sand or sawdust? Some blacks I've had in the past were coated in sawdust and these were fine.

Have a look at the posts I put up on blanching James. Some of the lads at the boat club put me on to using the very find sand that you find blown into corners on the Blackpool coastline - it's almost as fine as flour. Others use a fine vermiculite mix. Gut and coat them, leave in the fridge for 2 days then blanch. The coating falls off in the blanching pan and I just let them cool on paper and wrap as normall, clingfilm and then freeze. Not as good as blanched black but still a good bait imo
