    Not sure mate tbh...but are you looking for fresh or frozen ?

    I suppose it could be seasonal ? Just thinking of bbqs etc.

    Look in the freezers mate.or maybe ask them if they can get some in for you. Worth a go. Beats paying 3 odd a pack in tackle shops.you used to get a kilo of them for about 2 !

    Or....better still....look at these sites for pike baits

    Baits direct
    Online baits

    I have ordered plenty of sea fishing baits from the above.always come still frozen following day in polystyrene boxes.

    Always buy frozen! They cast like a rocket but care must be taken not to cast too hard as they can disintegrate very easily! A long baiting needle through from tail to head works with the hook in the hard head.

    A slice or tail section - defrosted - will catch chub on single hooks.

    Restaurants use frozen out of season.

    Always buy frozen. I ask for them specifically at waitrose and they sell them to me in 1kg bags for about 3. Never had a problem getting them.

    Do people pop them up at all using them pop up sticks poly balls etc ?

    If so...do you chop the head off and thread it through the body or connect it to the trace ?

    I currently am fishing a weedy water and although I have been catching on bottom baits, with the pop up poly balls it just looks awful and untidy !

    Cork balls of various sizes on eBay - cork being natural - unlike polystyrene balls!

    Hair type extension on bottom treble is what I use.
