Raw king prawns has ruled above everything else massively  in my experience! I don't bother with anything else. on the Yorkshire waters Iv fished expemeting with 1 rod on raw prawn 1 and 1 on worm or small deadbats and all sorts including squid. Muscles work sometimes but the raw king prawn always wins 10 times over!!!  I now fish 2 rods allways on raw king prawn and do well. lightest  leads you can use and minimum resistance along with awesome bite detection such as delkims along with nightlights.  Good luck!!

I'd love to know too 😊

Masive lob worm. Bigger the better on a size 18  big barb so it don't  wriggle off.  That's all you need. Don't forget they got small mouths hence the small hook..  Another crafty way is chicken livers  loads of them put in womens old tights. Wrap tights round loads of times. So it's gushing out juices   secure it to a rope and drop in side. Just pic up now and then through night. Them sharp Teeth get tangled in netting..  Job done.
