I struggled today. I got to the middles about 8am, it was still fairly lumpy so I went and sat in the deep water by the farm for a while. I went back on to the middles when the wind eased,  the water was a lot calmer by 9.30.I had a steady flow of hounds all taking hermit crab. Fortunately I didn’t get any spotty dogs. I also had one of the tiny tope, it seems that a lot were caught today but mine was the best🤣

They were frozen, there’s a commercial guy lives near me that sells them in packs. He charges £5 for a pack of at least ten, though it gets cheaper if you buy more.

Sounds like a good deal, I reckon that’s the difference between our 40 doggies and your none. we were fishing with squid and rag. 
  Im going to ask a local commercial in Brightlingsea

This guy is Nick Boyce, he works out of Bradwell so it’s obviously a bit far for you. I asked him about live ones but he said he loses too many to be worth doing. 
And thanks for entertaining the dogfish for me, by the way🤣

Out in the wilds, well away from people, most of them know Herman.

i saw you got some frozen hermits - but they were still in the shell though? - do you have to fully defrost them to remove them? is there a technique or tool?

Something like this would do it, if it was actually in stock.

Yeah but it's got a swanky handle so it's worth it, right? 🙄
