    Pointer.... I have frozen fresh mackeral whole and cut baits.... I like to put cut bait in separate baggies...... Better yet.... I also use a foodsaver VAC and do that with my fish and bait...... best yet is to keep the bait fresh on ice, but not in the water and use it that way..... If you have to feeze it then do it...

    Hope that this helps... Bayrunner Ray

    It find it more appropriate to cut the fish into pieces and freeze them that way. The food saver works great and keeps the bait from spoiling over time. Smaller fish like small shad and alewifes I will freeze whole.
