The Cod in Norway loved them , Rays find them irresitible Flatfish Plaice ,Turbot love them too
How do i Bait up with Tiger Prawn ?
Either use them whole with shell on if going for bigger fish on a 4//0 or 6/0 hook Sakuma Manta Extra is one of my favourites ,or Mustad Viking a great hook too.
get a baiting Needle or Bait loader and put the prawn on then slide onto hook beying carefull not to mask the point of the hook ,bait presentation is key when using any baits ,Then get some fine bait elastic and wrap several turns around the bait and hook and your ready ,if using smaller hooks then cut the prawn with either scissors,or a sharp knife into the required size.
What Rig Is Best to use ?
This depends on what fish you are targeting or whether you are beach or boat fishing i personally love the Pulley or Pulley Dropper Rig from the shore with a 3/0 Sakuma manta extra as my hook choice ,if fishing for Plaice i would probably use 2 hook clipped or flapper rig
