The limpet is a somewhat underrated bait which can at times be used effectively for some species, indeed my personal best Ballan Wrasse, a touch over 5lb, fell to a double limpet bait presented into a heavy kelp bed on the west coast.
The limpet is perhaps one of the best known shellfish, seen clinging tight to the rocks with their cone shaped shells.
|Where to Get It:|
Anywhere with rocks! It is best not to completely clear one area of limpets but to gather them from a wider zone.
|How to Keep Fresh:|
Limpets will keep fresh in a bucket with some bladder vraic (seaweed) for a few days.
