Title: Black Lug
Wurzel - December 6, 2011 06:53 PM (GMT)
Is there anyone selling fresh black these days or has it priced itself out of the market or sold to "special customers only." Years ago i vaguely remember picking some up from olivers, but i dont remember where his shop is. Not as keen on blow lug as half the juices seem to leak out before you cast out and the frozen wraps of 10 are so hit and miss and bl..dy expensive at £4.50 a go, especially if you get a duff pack. :angry:
Never get the chance to shop at veals, only on-line; if i'm buying blow lug my mate gets it from b.a.c cos its local or we pick some up from reel fun. Good quality blow, but i'd be far happier with fresh black.
Any help advise appreciated. ;)

Reel Fun was quite a good supplier last winter as i used them a few times on my travels. Weymouth angling gets a load in every Friday at £4.50 for 10. There is a few websites that you can buy it from and it comes well packed and is decent stuff. Its a bit far to travel but if you are ever down that way, Micks tackle in Hythe nr Folkestone is the cheapest that i have ever come accross, £4.00 for 20 worms. Thats for gutted blacks by the way!

Thanks chaps, will try to pop in and see Steve at reel fun at the weekend, was in there last week, but forgot to ask as i was in a hurry. Had a look at online baits uk, seem quite reasonable for fresh gutted blacks. Good to know about weymouth especially if i get a chance to fish chesil :D
Thanks again chaps. ;)

Indeed, aka 'Slaps' and a damn good bait. He generally has them in after the spring tides but as said, might be worth giving him a shout first.

Veals in high bridge normally receive some every Friday. Probably best to call them in advance and book some as it can be a bit hit and miss cos everyone has ordered in advance

Steve said he had some slaps coming in (on Thurs I think) when I bought my lug off him this morning. Give him a call.

I get 150 a time for £27. Works out at £1.80 for 10. They're Frozen, gutted and not really big ones but wrapped in plastic so the juices don't get absorbed. 2 or 3 tipped with squid has caught me allsorts.. If you want some info then inbox me

Run by Graham and Marie it's a great bait and tackle shop.

Now you mention it, I havent seen any fresh (live) blacks around for ages, a few years ago w wre buying HUGE ones from Olivers (which is on Alexander Road, opposite the gym, just of 6 ways roundabout) I wonder why....?
The packs of "slaps" from Steve, Reel fun are very good though and can be frozen...
