Fishing Guernsey - powered by Mick's fishing



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.

Species to Catch:
Excellent For:Wrasse
Good For:Small Pollack,
Variable For:Bass, Bream
