Chuck em in for next time. Keeps the swim baited up. Or freeze them and use em dead next time.
Decisions, decisions, its what fishings all about.

I tend to either offer them to people at the fishery or take them home and leave them with the lid open overnight on the lawn for the birds and other wildlife to have a go at.

Marvin,

Choices, choices, choices:

1. Turn them to caster and use them, or freeze as noted above.

2. Offer them to any juniors on the bank.

3. Or, do as I do and fish with Mark or Andy, or Nigel or Jeff and you never have that problem :-0)

And if all else fails then I think Jason made the best alternative suggestion.

Freezer, or riddle off the sawdust/maize and leave them in the fridge to turn to casters if fishing in the week (don't forget about them!)

Put them in the bait fridge, they’ll keep for at least two weeks on a very low temperature. Use the next time you go out as feeder maggots in conjunction with half a pint of fresh maggots as hookers. Fridged maggots as they get older lose some of their size before they get ready to pupate.

If turning to caster, add a teaspoon of water to each pint, it makes the caster swell according to the matchmen up north.
