put them in trays and add fresh sea water but don't totally cover them keep the sea water in the same fridge as them change the water on them every 3 or 4 days discarding any ones that look like they are going off they should last up to 2 weeks

Try your local shop and see do they sell the Haribo sweets loose the containers are the job. When they stack there is enough space between them to give the bait space to move around in.

With a good bit of management you could keep the rag for weeks. I usually change the water every third day. The lug need a bit more care. Any lug that do not feel firm to touch dump it out
I have the fridge set at 4

Thanks.
Ive to keep them 2 days before i go fishing so hopefully they last that long.
I have been thinking about the leftovers.
I hear they dont freeze well so i was considering making up some combos and freezing them.
What should i try?

I put them in squid sandwiches with mussels and they work well, you can ad mack aswell - anything really. Big squid needed tho, I freeze then cut down the middle and in half for nice chunks, wrap well in elastic.

Dont last long like that but are very good - For longer lasting just cut in half, can be big though! The squid is nice and tough and can take a good hammerinig from crabs.
