will have to stock up myself @ that price.
Main Reason is that iodised salt destroys most of the colour and shine of the anchovies. I have used iodised in the past but have found the results much better with the sea salt.
give it a go with the iodised and then next time try the sea salt.

I know they work wonders for blue cod and snapper seem to like it too.Has anyone used it from the beach on the east-side?18/01/2008 at 11:47 pm #9970
Cant say I have ever even thought of it….might have to give it a go I think. Mind you I went on a charter and we were using blue cd gut flaps to catc BLUE COD19/01/2008 at 1:40 am #9972
Yeah it worked good with blue cod because its so tuff and it stays on the hook good,mind you blue cod arent picky eaters either but sein snapper get takin on it suprised me.Im gonna give it a try today at the awatere contest and just see what its like with the species on the coast.19/01/2008 at 10:44 am #9976stormParticipant
Sevengillz your on the money with the eel man , we use it down here on the 7 gillers
even though they eat anything and ive tried almost everything for bait
they love that eel, the heads in particular19/01/2008 at 5:34 pm #9979
Thats good to know mate im gonna have to start using more often.Another good thing about them is the are easy to get and they are free! I have a river at my back door and its full of eels ive been feeding up so I think ill just take 2 or 3 as I need them.I guess I sorta forgot about using them for bait but its good too know I have a big live-bait tank at my door step and can get a cuple 5 mins before I head to the beach.Bait dont come much fresher than that!
So do you target sevengills or just whatever happens by?
