has anyone used sprats as bait? are they any good. i ask as i found packs of uncooked whole sprats, about a dozen per pack for 50p in morrisons, might they be good put whole on a pennel pulley??
Strips of sprat are supposed to be good for large dabs, although you do need lots of elastic to keep them on the hook. Unfortunetly, peak time for dabs has been and gone (february being the last month for a chance), and most of them have gone out to spawn. Might be worth buying some though, and freeze them as a reserve bait.
