100% on the check previous posts:clap3::clap3::clap3:

I took frozen unwashed squid this year, and was good for Dabs and Plaice, some of the group collected mussels at low tide (not that you get much rise and fall) , they caught Dabs and Plaice also. Year before last we dug bait . The local guide lent us a fork and managed to dig some stonking lug on the beach. Once again flat fish.
might be some import law about introducing live animals in to the country, in the far North of Norway, they already have problems with spider crabs.
We also caught lance and sandeels, when fishing for small coalfish for bait, so plenty of bait available on site so would question whether or not it is worth the effort.

we fished with phill earlier this year.

you may be told that bluey is all you need!!

but...
we took frozen blacks, frozen mussel and one lad took live rag. blueys we bought off phill.

blueys are the main bait out there and will get you most of the bigger fish.

haddock though took mussels and worms.

we payed for an extra bag each. this was in the form of a cool box. i took my frozen bait out in this and packed it with all food items i wanted.

it was used to bring frozen fillets back.

we had been told by friends who had been there 2 weeks before us that rag fished well [this they dug when in norway] dont expect to be put onto productive worm beds, you might get enough for a couple of casts and it takes up valuable fishing time.

one of our group took a few pound of fresh dug worm out with him. this was boxed in his extra cool box.

when the fishing was slow he was doing well with fish around 4lb using ragworm.

because the bait was transported in the hold it must have been allowed.

i know that the lads there before us brought a coolbox of large ragworm back with them. [which is why you may not be put onto good beds].

if asked phill will lend you a fork and take you digging, but personally i wouldnt waste that time that could be spent fishing.

id advise just taking a variety of baits out and using bluey as your main bait or in cocktails.
