Lock stock had some frozen ones in stock but I bought last 2 when I went a few months ago so not sure if he has any more in. Where you planning on using them? I tried off SPP for smoothies and had nothing, switched to small hard backs and had a bite within 5-10 mins :D

Always used to be loads under the pier - mind, I've not tried for probably 30 years!! My brother has been catching the smoothies on frozen hermit crab - he gets his from Tropicana in Littlehampton. They're big baits and good value too!
