    If worms freeze will they die? Well I am going to find out lol, I set up a lil fridge in my garage and I reckon I had the setting a little too cold and my nightcrawlers are frozen. Anyone know if they will make it out alive?

    Thems some dead worms you got there, use em up immediately after they thaw cause they will deteriate very fast.

    Try the mush in pieces of panty hose, maybe you'll get a bite.

    It depends on how long they've been froze?

    If they've only been froze a little while, they might be ok?

    My daughter was putting our fishing bait away in the freezer a few weeks ago, and threw the worms in there also. They were in there a couple hours, long enough to freeze good. I took them out and let them thaw and most of them lived.

    Now you have frozen chum! Freezing worms never worked for me either. I got an old fridge I use just for beverages and bait that will sometimes freeze whatever I put in it. The sensativity setting is way off.
