I was planning on gathering a few lobs during the close season, whacking some in the blender and chopping some up to be used once the river season kicks off again but don't know if they would be any good to use once they had thawed.
Anyone ever tried it[?]

well we freeze worms for sea fish they do go soggy unless salted but you want soggy/slimey so should be fine

Just read this

Worms tend not to freeze well, the slow freezing that you get in a domestic freezer allows large ice crystals to grow which cause a lot of damage to the cells. You very quickly end up with a black slimy mess after defrosting


But you could wrap them in newspaper seperate put a worm in roll a little add another worm and continue then blitz when needed give then a try with a few worms first see if it works
