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.
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.
