i have been using peelers for a couple of years now and this is the honest truth i have never caught anything on them not even a bite .some times i think it might be just me but does anyone else have this problem on the east coast? And yes i do take all the hard bits of and mount them properly :)

Oooooh peelers. I bought my first batch last week. There are about 18 of them sitting in my fridge as we speak. Tried them in Gourock and they worked a treat (in that we had several bites and four fish). Only pollack right enough but for a newcomer any species will do. I will actually need to despatch most of them tonight as A. won't be fishing until mid next week and B. mother is visiting this thursday. She would freak if she saw them.

The man who sold them to me gave a demo on how to prepare them and so far, so good. I hear they are sometimes better when defrosted after a while in the deep freeze. Will keep some for the winter months and hopefully some winter cod.

There are some species of fish that I would not consider fishing for in summer without crab. Flounder and Eel for definate. Smoothound and Bass are another two. From now till October I would not go a fishing trip without at least some crab in my bait box.
