Guys i really need your help!!!

I am thinking of trying to use some of the mentioned in the topic as dead beait for trolling. Can anyone please advise how i can catch/get some???

I have been told that they have to remain fresh if possible not getting them freezed.

I was planning to deploy 2 rods. One with a 200/250g lead runner and another with a 50/100g lead runner.

What setup should i use Huh?

A friend of mine told me i should insert a small hook in its mouth and a trebble in the back.

What thickness of leader shal i use Huh I was thinking maybe 35 - 40 mm.

Will be fishing in the harbour mainly for plamti and cudas.

Thanks in advance guys Wink

P.S I am new to live bait as when ever i tried i always had no patience but when you hear about people having good results with live bait then i shal have to be patient and try it out.

I normally go and fish for lacci, but I used it a bait sor shore fishing. I go during the night or early morning for lacci. I fish with a 3meter rod using .10mm line, No 22 hook, .5gr float and use "GHALF TA L-AWRAT" as bait.
