they have to be fresh, its to do with the air left in the swim bladder. the freezing process eliminates this

my fishing buddy told me Morrisons are doing a cracking deal on Sardine Mac n a few other baits.
i only fished once yesterday for pike 7 blanked so i can not say what was good for me. i finished with smelt and i only cast no more than 30 yards.
i only have a Singlies one man shelf top freezer, so its a battle BAIT V FOOD...think bait will win somehow.
as with beach fishing all my baits were aquired away from tackle shops (friends live at the coast) i then used the money saved for the terminal tackle.

not sure mate, best to give him a call
a lot of his baits are baitbox but the pollen aren't they come in sealer bags ( believe its the vacuum packing that causes pollan to sink rather than freezing)



noodle: let me know how you get on with the little boy, you got any other c.b. lures? got a thinman myself, amazing paint

er coming up to two Wink

he likes lures sadly its just the taste and noise they make at the moment

so far he has a 7 ft spinflex with a 300 pro, a box of small lures long a's mirro lures 28gm atlantic magnum spoons shimano triple impacts and the like all bought as they will work just about anywhere for pike perch trout mackeral chub.....

the three eustace rods as they are nice simple blanks that will protect him and the fish from mistakes as he is learning (reels im waiting on are original biomasters in 4000 size he wont let me near his aerlex (the original rear drag ones)

ive already got him some odds and sods like waggler rod and 501 a whip etc

all at one side unused and will remain so im thinking if he grows up with it it may help keep him sane it did with me without fishing and to a lesser extent climbing id be living (if i was lucky) ather majestys pleasure now
