There are at least half a dozen commercial ones in as bad a state on the pier... ;-)

Should have bought the posher one that is like a plastic grid... There are a whole pile of something very similar sat on the pier.

I have had lobster with a tin of mackerel ( baited up pot, not food combo )

Surprise as it was an desperate emergency lure, I've heard of cuttlefish entering a pot baited with a white plastic bottle thinking it was a mate, I thought they were intelligent
