How to bait your Marseille Mussel.
1. Shuck a bag of mussels and leave to one side, preferably in a liquid tight container.
2. Select the Marseille Mussel Clam and leave open on the table
3. Remove the shaped weight from the clam shell
4. Pass a length of pre-hooked monofilament through the weight hole from the flat end through to the pointy end of the lead.
5. Select one or two shelled mussels and pass the hook through both sliding the first mussel past the hook eye and the second upto the hook eye.
6. Lay the weight into the mussel clam ensuring that the mono is free to move when you close the two halve together - listen for the "Snap" that tells you that the clam is shut firmly.
7. Fix a swivel to the loose end of the mono for a quick change over, making sure that you have at least 24" of trace length, this is to allow for a timid fish to take a bait without feeling the weight and getting spooked
8. Fish one bait and have a second bait ready to go.
You can apply the same baiting method for other baits such as peelers, hard backs, razor fish and worm. Target your species with an appropriate bait and pay attention to the bait size. Note. There are two lugs on the top of the clam shell which you can tie together to avoid the clam from accidentally opening on its way to the bottom.
That's all there is to it.
