Top 5 Sea Fishing baits

  • Lugworm - perhaps the most commonly used sea fishing bait of them all. Lugworms are widely available and can be bought in most fishing tackle shops. They are threaded onto the hook from their head to cover the hook entirely. Great bait - but important to make sure you keep swapping for fresh baits, as loses is smell quickly.
  • Harbour Ragworm | King RagWorm | White Ragworm - The second most popular sea fishing bait has to be the rag worm. These are also avalable in fishing tackle shops and are used in the same way as the lug worm. These are generally lighter in colour and you will see that they have small feet. The main difference between the 3 different types of rag worm is the colour and the size.
  • Sandeel - Is a bait that is also threaded onto the hook, but it can be slightly trickier at times. Sandeel is becoming a more and more popular sea fishing bait. Fresh sandeel is always best. Frozen will be OK for a cast but after that it will have lost its smell.
  • Calamari Squid - An unusual looking bait that continues to prove it is a great catcher. The squid should be cut into strips using a sharp knife and threaded onto the hook, and sometimes even up the line. Usually used with larger hooks, and can be bought from the Super Market. It is important to use fresh squid to improve your chances of catching.
  • Fish Strips - Fish baits are quite commonly under rated! More records are held by fish baits and therefore more people should use them. All you need to do is simply slice the fish into strip and apply to your hook. You can use in the same way as a squid or you can hook it on, with the hook hidden inside the fish. Mackerel is the most common used fish bait.
