Hi all,

I was in my local supermarket this morning and, in the 'Reduced' section, they had a bag of frozen uncooked king prawns reduced to 1.59 (comparable with some of the usual baits I buy). Now I know that these prawns come from the Pacific or some other exotic place, but has anybody tried them over here? I normally fish Dungeness beach using a pennel pulley rig, and it seems to me that a nice big lugworm(s) topped off with a juicy king prawn might make a tasty morsel for that double figure cod that has my name on it. I now wish that I had bought the packet and given them a try. Anybody got any comments (apart from what a silly old fool I am!)?

Cheers, Geoff big grin big grin big grin

Hi Dave.

We are very lucky in that our local supermarket manager would rather give stuff away than put it in a skip (which some of them will). I am now kicking myself for not buying them (and maybe sharing them with the cod!). But will keep an eye out in future, and then....

Cheers, Geoff

I've caught gar, mackerel, all sorts of mini-species, bass gurnard and whiting on those prawns..... a very effective bait and easy to present on a 4/0 hook..... fat end first and coax around the bend so that the small end is at the hook point so that it isn't masked. Small species are content with small slices on smaller hooks.
Stands up to casting and even at full price works out cheaper than crabs or worm bait.

Hi all,

Many thanks for your very useful comments. I have now got a packet of raw king prawns in the freezer awaiting my next trip to Dungeness. If I can fight my wife for them I will let you know if they are successful or not.
