I'm very fond of the 5" sandeels, colour sapphire shiner. I've caught some good pollock on them, mostly being retrieved at high speed. Cuttlefish like them as well.

Well, I gave em a go last night. newquay harbour. used the shrimp on a jig head. no interest what so ever. Stuck the crab out there on a 2 hook rig with some rag, and it came back without any legs/claws. definatley been nibbled. Fish were prob too small to take it i reckon.

Later, using a float, i threaded the crab up the line above my hook with soem rag on it. I was getting a lot more bites than my mate who was doing exactly the same but without the crab. We got 14 pollock/whiting in total. All tiny, under 6", better than nowt though!

So far then, it appears that the crab definately has some effect, not sure about the shrimp yet though. I'm gonna give em another bash on thursday, I think.
