Hi all, 

Headed out to the rocks today to pick some cabbage for bait. Also found this green, long algae that feels like hair. Would it work for bait? Here's a pic:

It’s a bit hard to tell from the pic, but looks okay to me.  
Only one way to know for sure, give it a try, though you really should be looking for something a richer, green color and without that brown under-layer.

Look for something more like this. You'll often find it where freshwater runs out of a hill or cliff and over the rocks.

I've used weed that looked like that (also found it in a rock pool similar to the pic) and it worked pretty well

You can also scrape off the weed that covers the rock for bait and burley: I found a  YouTube video of someone doing just that:

If you can get your weed without scraping it all off and by that I mean leaving the roots on the rock, it will grow back sooooo much quicker.
