|Turkish term or phrase: sulunes|
During a walk on the seafront here I came across someone fishing. He showed us the bait he was using: cigarette-shaped shells containing small creatures. He was adamant that the right word was “sulunes”, but I can't find it anywhere.
What might the correct form of the word be, and what would be the correct translation, please?
All the best,

There are many live types of bait that can be used to catch fish.
These include earthworms, also known as dew worms and night crawlers, and insects including grasshoppers, flies, insect larvae and crickets.
Other live baits are minnows, chub, shad, crayfish and frogs.
Live bait can be purchased at fishing bait and tackle stores, at some variety stores in popular fishing areas, on a dewy lawn after dark (use a flashlight to find dew worms), compost piles, around piers and boat launches as well as around campsites.
Prepared bait is bait that has been previously prepared. These include kernel corn, bread balls, cheese balls, stink baits, salmon eggs, cereal balls, baked potato pieces, chicken entrails and hotdogs.
Artificial bait is bait that is manmade. These include plastic worms and insects, flies, lures, small jigs, streamer flies, spoons, streamers and spinners.
