Was just wondering what was the best bait for these giant fish. I am sure i have seen posts in the past talking about using dogfish, may be mistaken. Was thinking about catching some pollock for up upcoming trip if they were any use. Would be interested in any views from any regular skate anglers or anyone that would like to add their tuppence worth.

i have caught them on smalish pollack as well.
top bait is mackerel.
3 or 4 mackerel or coalies. Dogfish can be useful if your bait is being chomped by spurs as they tend to leav it alone.

octopus is proving to be successfull and rainbow trout can be very good,tbo they don,t seem to be very fussy but most anglers have their favourite.good luck
