Hi Dave.

We are very lucky in that our local supermarket manager would rather give stuff away than put it in a skip (which some of them will). I am now kicking myself for not buying them (and maybe sharing them with the cod!). But will keep an eye out in future, and then....

Cheers, Geoff

I've caught gar, mackerel, all sorts of mini-species, bass gurnard and whiting on those prawns..... a very effective bait and easy to present on a 4/0 hook..... fat end first and coax around the bend so that the small end is at the hook point so that it isn't masked. Small species are content with small slices on smaller hooks.
Stands up to casting and even at full price works out cheaper than crabs or worm bait.

Hi all,

Many thanks for your very useful comments. I have now got a packet of raw king prawns in the freezer awaiting my next trip to Dungeness. If I can fight my wife for them I will let you know if they are successful or not.

Cheers, Geoff :D :D :D
