Unfortunately I don't think anyone will tell you where to find/dig bait. Like fishing spots they can be closely guarded secrets to protect them from being exploited. Someone from the area may be kind enough to send you a private message but apart from that get yourself a quality fork and get out and about over low water. Once you find a good spot you wont look back regards buying bait.

thanks wooly. thats true, i totally understand that. i was really just hoping for a general area or some already well known spots. i put a post up looking for advice on places to fish, again i was talking generally as where someone may advice having a cast. im not even after big fish, a couple of dogs or flounder would be great. im only getting back into sea fishing now as ive only went apx 3 time in the last few years. thanks for your replies i apprieciate it.
