During festive season it is quite difficult to get fresh baits. I have learn to make my own. Quite effective although not as effective as those fresh ones. At least I have some baits with me when in need. This is how prepare the bait.
Some fresh prawns.
A plastic container.
Some coarse sea salt.
1. Put 1 layer of the sea salt in the container.
2. Arrange the prawns on it and cover them with the sea salt.
You can have a few layers if you want it.
When done. Keep it in the freezer.
To use it simply remove the sea salt and hook it to your fishing hook.
If you get lucky, you’ll hook some fish.
