The price of fish !!!!

Post by Fenman2 on Thu Dec 24, 2009 12:30 pm

geek I thought I'd stock up with bait, I'm off work all next week Party/socialize

Popped into S.A.S. and Steve Younger did me a good deal with some smelt and I went to a local fish merchant Jerk It for some mackeril........£3.69 EACH affraid for the mangiest looking frozen specimens you ever did see :!: So I politely declined Kiss My Ass
Is this general ? Are other members having the same problem ?

My baits, I normally get them out of the water Iím fishing If posable.if not itís the fish counter at Tescos. But yes mackeril prices have gone through the roof i was shocked by it this year as i had a load in stock from when i went mackeril fishing this year. When they ran out i was gob smacked by the price. Try Herring they work well as a dead bait and not a bad price

The price of bait is a joke at the moment and the supermarkets dont tend to have many fish in, but what they do have I will be buying because I have just been given a chest Freezer Yahoo

Yep a bait freezer is a must if you fish as much as I do when my one broke last Christmas I lost a lot of bait I had over £200 of boilies in there and £50 of dead baits and loads of frozen particle I didnít relies as it was in the garage when I opened it up the smell was something that could take your breath away. But a look through the local paper got me another one and were back in business afro

no mate as stotty has said, freeze them first then hook them up still frozen. they hold on the cast and de-frost very quickly once in the water and the hooks pull out very easily.

yes its turning up a lot more now

http://ukfishingforums.darkbb.com/general-fishing-talk-f1/wanna-buy-mirror-carp-to-eat-t3357.htm?highlight=selling+carp

I sort of see this as Ok Suspect as these are farmed fish farmed for the table so better than them coming out of my club lake or river. It the whole carp and Christmas thing itís a traditional polish Christmas dish. Suspect
