Preparing Lug and squid cocktail

A bait that is becoming more popular in the North East is the squid and worm cocktail.

Lugworm is placed on the hook first (preferably black lug) and slid up the trace. The squid is then secured by passing the hook through the flesh 2 or 3 times and finally wrapped with baiting elastic.

Don’t be mean with this particular bait. Use 3 or 4 large worm and either all of the tentacles and innards of the squid or a large strip from the body. Make sure the hook point is clear. Ragworm can be used instead of lug and an alternative to the squid could be razorfish.
