Fishing lobster is one of my favorite hobbies. The question is the same every year: What lobster pots should I use and what bait is the best?
After discussing this topic with a lot of fishermen I have come to a conclusion: The best bait is sait to be ballan wrasse, salted for a couple of weeks. The wrasse is fished during the summer and fall and then salted. The lobster prefer the smell of old and salt flesh.
The other favorite bait is mackerel. This should be smelly and almost rotten. Before it falls apart it is salted. The strong smell of carcass and salt attract the lobsters and keep the crabs away.
