Headed down to slapton yesterday evening around 4:30. High tide was just after 6.

On the 2nd rod I tried to target some bigger fish that might have been...
Just come back from Cold Knap expecting a good couple of Doggies & maybe an odd Ray, but instead... a blank, somehow? I was fishing two big baits on two rods, hoping for either an early pack of Smoothies to come around or to see if a Ray was lurking about, but instead, all I got were...
I've been looking into oils for old baits such as Solent Seagoo & Holy Mackerel, the thing that's stopping me tho is whether it's effective or not... I don't need to buy something that's not going to work so if anybody has used them before for either boat or shore (which I'm preferring...
First of all I'm sorry If this isn't in the right area but haven't been on here in a while so I wasn't sure where else to put this thread.

I'm trying to get my hands on some live sandeel and wonder what are/is your preferred way of catching them (from the shore).
Some of the methods I've heard about are -
Catch them in a pushnet just like prawns,
A bigger net pulled about by a couple of people,

Has anyone tried emulating the PVA mesh bags that carp anglers use to get more scent by their bait from the shore?
I invariably have some bait leftover after most trips and wondered if freeze drying or desiccating it, sticking it in a PVA mesh bag and using it as "groundbait" by the hook...
