I’ve done it multiple ways with no difference. I’ve kept it frozen til it hits the water and also have run it thawed. You gotta remember when it hits the surface water it will thaw quickly anyways especially if using pre cut strips
In my opinion the thing that makes the greatest difference is the roll behind your rig. If tuned correctly it is deadly

Ok Thanks. I had some familiar bite herring last week that just fell apart before I could even get it into the head. I'm guessing they where in the frig too long.

Yeah that may have been. I use familiar bite as well. I keep it in the package and stick it in the ice in cooler. Then use throughout the trip with no problems usually

Also Try putting a little Kosher salt in the meat container you keep them in on the boat. It toughens up the skin and they last longer. Especially if your having a slow day.

I use Putzke brine and familiar bite. I bribe them the night before. I keep mine in the brine all night and fishing the next day.

It’s in your swivel
A meat rig is not a stealth presentation so I would say upgrade and possibly upsize your swivel. Get a good one with ball bearings appropriately sized for your flasher and rig and you should be fine.
Good swivels are expensive but worth every penny
