Have you won the lottery?
Hi Dominic ,Oysters was one of the best Mullet baits I have used
Funny Gert mentioning Brittany, but I used them often in Cancale in brittany there is a wonderful spot on the far side of the harbour you have a little slip way next to half a dozen stalls selling fresh oysters from the beds in the bay there. People come down in their droves to eat oysters on the front with all the shells being dumped over the wall into the sea.
Float fished using a 6meter pole and 14 elastic very very productive.
Any news on oysters as bait? Where I am (St Lawrence, Essex) the mud flats are literally covered in them. I'm thinking that you can get far more meat out of an oyster than a mussel and I would think the meat is probably a bit firmer than mussel too. So if anyone could update on using oyster as bait that would be most handy. If they are any good then I am going out to fill a carrier bag with them - should take less than 5 mins...
Its a cracking part of the world il be back there this year for the first time in over 10years. Im touring spain italy and france and plan to spend a month or so just fishing Brittany any info on decent spots would be great lol.Hi Dominic ,
