No mate, their skins are too delicate, a tip given to me by George Smith is to freeze them in clingfilm like a small sausage then attach to the hooks with bait elastic and pierce it with a bait needle a couple of times just before casting out.
Only flatties seem to be attracted to these though, so if your afer Cod or Bass, then stick to more traditional baits. :)
