Collecting white mussel


New member
Hi guys

I have been looking at using some white mussel for bait and found this thread:

Just wondering how you go about collecting these guys? Ive seen on some youtube channels they use a spade like net to trap them as they come up into the waves but our collection method is limited to "only by hand or with an implement with a blade or flat edge not exceeding 12mm in width"
Anyone use them or collect them that can shed some light?
