Baitbox Frozen Lamprey
Although still relatively new to the pike bait scene, lamprey has made a huge impact over the last few years and have accounted for a lot of fish. Lamprey are not just a pike bait either, some big zander and catfish have also fallen to this bait.
Lamprey are members of some of the extremely primitive jaw-less fishes, that feed by sucking the blood from other fish. They contain a very large amount of blood that simply oozes out of a cut bait!
PLEASE NOTE THAT COARSE BAITS ARE BANNED IN SOME AREAS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM – PLEASE CHECK LOCAL BYLAWS BEFORE USING.
Lamprey is normally fished on the bottom or popped-up, on either leger or float tackle. Sections are the perfect size to use as bait, and simply hook the top treble into one end of the bait and the second treble in the side of the section.
The whole lamprey are best cut into halves for pike, or chunks when fishing for zander and used on a Single Treble Trace.
