Bait Digger, Worthing Beach
The Lugworm lives in the inter tidal area of beaches and more commonly estuaries. They live in a U shaped burrow, one end is open (the head end) and the other has a CAST which is a coil of sand created by the creature burrowing and digesting the substrate, drawing out the goodness it may contain.<br />
<br />
There are codes of conduct for bait digging. Fill in all the wholes you dig, only take the bigger worms and don't dig around moorings.<br />
