Try Mikes Tackle in Edinburgh, they specialise in mailorder. They have the large orange grubs with curl tails, the sort you fish with large leadheads.

I dont really use jellys anymore, what you want to try are the Storm 4inch shads, the Calcutta Flashfoil shads and the Tempest eels. These all brought good success for small to medium pollock for me last year (3lb to 8lb bracket).

They work well from bothe the shore and boat. Just make sure that you buy the casting or they will just loop in th eair landing a few yards away when cast.

how do you rig the shads and worms up??

do you just put them on a hook and have a simple ledger??

The best rig is either the 'Hopper rig' or the 'Flying collar rig'. Personally i prefer the Hopper rig. Rigging it up is simple;
Thread a 10-12 inch boom up your main line (Shakespeare or the Mustad booms are good).
Add on a bead after the boom (i prefer the Mustad rubber beads).
Tie on a strong swivel using a four turn grinner knot (80lb Berkley or Sz 8 Mustad will do the trick).
Then tie on a 3-5ft clear 30lb snood (Fluorocarbon my prefered choice).
Tie on your selected shad, or a size 3/0 - 5/0 to thread your jelly onto.
Lastly add your choice of lead, (4 - 10oz aquapedo or similar).

There you have it a simple and effective boat Pollock rig.
If you want to know a rig for using shads from the shore just post and i will detail it.

Right there are two options from the shore.
Easiest one is to just thread a 1 or 2oz barrel or ball lead onto your 30lb running leader.
Next add a 4 or 5mm bead.
Tie on a smaller swivel (sz 10 Mustad diamond eye).
Then tie on your snood, about 3ft of 20lb clear mono. (Mustad Ayaka or Berkley Vanish is good)
Then all you do is tie on your shad and away you go.

The second, which is not as good and will recieve criticism is to;
Firstly add a size 1/0 Mustad oval link to the middel, downwards pointing eye of 60lb Mustad 3-way swivel.
Tie you main line to one end of the 3-way swivel and again add a 3-4ft snood.
Finally tie this to you your shad.

Ohh, just a thought. over shallower marks you can float fish jellies and shads using either a clear bubble float or Drennan Pike float. Just use it with a set hooklength of about 4ft. This is a good tactic for bass, but will also take pollock and coalies from the shore.

yea but if you float fish a shad, it will be face up all the time, thats not very natural..
