    Hello all and new to the forum here. I am trying to find out your favorite lobster bait or combination. Pricing indications would also be appreciated.

    A lot would depend on not only where (general location) you are setting as well as how long a soak you intend to make.
    Where I lobster in Long Island Sound off of CT we use skate and menhaden in the summer. Bluefish racks also work well.
    The thought is that the menhaden breaks up fairly quickly since it's a softer fish while the skate generally lasts longer. Lobster fishing has been pretty disappointing the past few years and we have been hauling on a four or five night set.
    Hope this helps and good luck
