Wherever you are in the Mid-Atlantic area, now is the time to stock up on Norfolk Spot. Stripers love them, as do Drum.

Any size will do.

Freeze then in gallon bags, 6-10 in each bag, depending on their size.

Put a layer of fish on a layer of non-iodized salt, Kosher salt works great and is inexpensive.

Add another layer of salt on top and then another layer of fish, then a salt layer on top.

You don't need to smother it, just enough to have a visible layer. Stick 'em in the freezer and remove a bag whenever you need. They will last through the fall and winter, and maybe the spring if you have enough.

Later in the season and spring, you'll be glad you have them, because they won't be around to catch!

I agree. Fishbites bloodworm alternative works great.
