You can keep worms fresh for 3 weeks in the refrigerator however you have to follow the rules below to get them to last longer.

I find worms to be the perfect bait to catch catfish and if you are a regular angler like me then you definitely need to keep them fresh for a couple of weeks to catch the fish on a daily basis.

Follow these exact tips below to make the worms last longer:

  1. When at the bay or ocean put them and their weeds in a 7″ x 7″ plastic container.
  2. Soak them in the bay/ocean water a few times while fishing.
  3. Drain the water from the container.
  4. Bring a 16 oz water bottle of bay/ ocean water home with you.
  5. Keep them cool in your fridge and make sure the plastic lid of the container has small air holes.
  6. Once or twice a week spray some of that water on them and mix the worms and weeds.
  7. I’ve had them stay lively for close to 3 weeks.
