Hiro make some sabiki and hockai type lures dont to a size 14 hook I think. The ones on size 10 hooks with the little red tube work for launce round here. Replace the weight on the rig with a heavy metal flashy lure like the largest Dexter wedge

The problem is finding the sandeels! I have been trying to find areas that hold them but apart from the odd eel I have never found a good spot for them. Can anyone tell me what I should be looking for. The only places I have found them is on a wreck once and the odd launce from the Shambles or Varne Banks.

plenty of launce on the varne, but only certen parts of the bank,
but you will only get them at high or low slack water, use small eel rigs and you wont go wrong, if you pm me i will give you some mumbers for your g p s.

also sandeels at rye and sandeels at newhaven.

sandeels are now showing and will be untill about october.

Now that the boat is at Newhaven I could do with some marks for the eels. PM me if you prefer:secret: .

I sue bait feathers now and again from the boat, as long as it's not to weedy there great! Although never had sand eel, just schoolies! But only used them a couple of times, but confident they work, if you drop them in the right place...
