They eat their way into live and dead bodies and can tie themselves in knots.
thats right we had one in a pot years ago and i caught one with rod and line once,stuff that comes out sticks like poor impact adhesive was still stuck to the floor months later ,,,some one told me that they recovered a dead body from the sea and what was left was the outer skin with bones loose inside all the flesh had gone ,, ,.think their stomach is on the outside of their bodys and thats what the slime is ,,,suppose its corrosive i know crabs and lobby s wont go anywhere near one or its slime .

Here, JSP is in my Union, so there'll be none of that, or we're picketing your posts!

Hey, back to bugs for a minute.
You can use drop nets here without a special fisheries license (just normal ocean fishing license which I have)
As I'm out on the water all weekends for 3 to 4 hours ,is there any chance with these of a bug or two?
Seems you would have to be lucky to time it when the bugs in there!

The eclipse net seems the closest to a trap, so what do you think?
So stinky bait, soft bottom and closest to night for best chance

cheers Dal

i have seen a few home made star shaped drop nets that when pulled up form a triangular cone so the catch cannot escape and have seen people use a peice of old trawl net with lead core rope or weights whipped around the outer edge but how good they are i have no idea ,suppose they would be ok in calm water ,,,what does catch is a few yards of mono filiment netting with a weight on and a dead fish placed in the middle but it gets all tangled and in most cases damages the catch weather your keeping it or discarding it and it can take ages to unwrap,,,regards mart
