Dhue bait

Bored today. Got some great bait. Skinned heads out this time , rather than throwing them away. Fantastic bait. Normally can't be bothered. They never go slimy or get water pockets in them.

Bait. Only figured out today how to do properly.normaly chop them off and in bin. Kept a few last few trips . Stays on good . Doesn't bubble. Doesn't go sllimy. Bit thicker than squid. Best of all stays on hook.

 Caught a lot when we were crayfishing, cut heads half off to kill, left on body. Very good bait, wetliners always wanted them included.
