    Has anyone had any success for cod when using prawns ?; the sort you can buy in Tesco's. They usually go on the hook well with runnydown or lugworm.

    Stick them in with some sweet chilli sauce, eat them then buy some of the magic cart from this forum.

    Don't mix them up though. :crazy:

    Last year I used uncooked prawns when boat fishing at Seahouses, bagged up when others werent catching very much.. so yes, plus I have had Codling , Whiting and Bass from the beaches / rocks using the same bait.
    I always carry a packet when fishing the beaches , useful for cocktailing with Lug or Mussel.

    I landed a codling that coughed a prawn up so I stuck it on the hook and cast back out. Two minutes later I landed a 5 pound codling so yes they do work mate

    I have caught quite a few nice cod on shrimps I had netted from my local shore , I used to mount them on a bait pin , runswick bay
    beach was a good place to use them , Ive also had them on sandeels as well , it was a bait that fished better as the weather hardened
    along with cockles and clams
