If any sea fishermen are looking in, could you kindly tell me how much you are currently paying for a box of kalamari/squid? The boxes weigh around a pound. While I'm at it, how much does a packet of sand eels go for?

Many thanks.

I pay 1.25 for the small box of squid at the Chinese supermarket. It's over twice that at every tackle shop locally.

I paid 4.60 for a pack of 10 Ammo frozen sandeels last week.

If you can post some down, live, to me, I'll buy 'em!! LOL!!

I use a small spinning rod and sabiki's to grab a few. Bass down here like a live prawn and they're everywhere.

This year I'm going to be out with the fly rod (and nothing else) around the rock marks and estuary's and I'll also hit Brighton beach for mackerel. They go well on 7 weight gear.

I've taken another step towards my sea fishing bait enterprise. I now have 48 boxes of kalamari resting in the freezer.
