the new Peanut Worms - any takers?

Postby The Austrian » Fri Apr 26, 2013 2:39 pm

What are Peanut Worms I hear you ask? Sipunculans, or Peanut Worms, are a type of Lugworm, and are found throughout most of the world's oceans. There are an estimated 300 to 500 species of Peanut Worms, however, many of them are small and as they tend to be found in tough environments, such as the insides of rocks, they are not of much interest to the sea angler. They are found all around the coast of the British Isles and are sub tidal - living from the low water mark down to depths of hundreds of metres.

So what makes Peanut Worms such a potent bait? Peanut Worms are the vacuums of the ocean, they suck up bacteria and algae which creates a natural chemical reaction that generates a shiny sparkling skin in the day and a faint phosphorescent glow at night. More importantly the Peanut Worm is loaded with amino acids that attract fish like bees to nectar. They have two rectangular muscles which create an attractive movement and which also makes them a much tougher bait that lives longer once baited. This allows a longer period of time, compared to other similar baits like Ragworm or Lug, for fish to track down the worm before the angler has to re-bait.

Would be nice to read an educated opinion or even some personal experiences with this bait. Certainly looks the business.

I haven't a notion Dan, that's the reason for my post, I have never heard of these little critters being used as top class bait, can anyone contribute some facts, good or bad? Looks like another money making scheme to me, who wouldn't be surprised at this stage... :roll:

well Denis, cases of uncountable foulhooked fish could be on the increase, unless they are from the foulmouthed species :lol:

Had a quick look on the English forums and from what they are saying , they are very popular in the med for bream , but not much use in England , so I guess it a case of tempting the fish with what they are used to.
