I think I can drum up some anus scent.Old school lingcod diamond jig concept.
A thought. Stuff the lower 1/4 with octopus or sand dab parts. Maybe leave the lower part hollow. Then stuff it with bait and plug/cover the bottom with netting so the scent releases but the goodies stay inside the jig
Lings love anise scent
do you guys get many cabezo down that way, that is the most difficult fish to fillet.
