just leave the hermits out of water for a while, they soon start to exit their shells, i have many in the freezer for my winter fishing, but only the soft ends, wrapped in clingfilm.
first i freeze the whole crab, then snap off the soft bit and wrap.
stuff em in the body of a squid, or just elastic 3--4 tails onto a set of 4/0s, seem to work just as well as peeler, but tends to fish better after a blow
