    Last summer I was off the inland side of palm beach for the first time its acres of weed about 2-3 meters deep so I put out a sugar pen and caught a pike also got a bonnie close to the edge and had have strikes on poppers. Its a bit hit and miss.

  8. Tips for fishing for bait eg yakka

    As above and when I used a subiki I used a star sinker on the bottom the taught line seems to make them hook themselves (no give) but I bait all three hooks normally. They cant resist it. I have had good results with a handline small splitshot and long shank hook.
  9. Bait fish trap to catch yakkas on the boat

    Hi I never heard of using bait traps for yakkas but you could keep them alive in a keepers net with the right size aperture.
  10. Bycatch spinning for tailor

    Nice by catch what area are you in be fore I grab my halco and tear off down the beach
  11. Sidearm casting

    How low is the jetty and how close are you? Straight back over the shoulder and bullet straight release will get you in there but if you are under structure side cast can work how deep do you need to go

  13. Setting drag

    As said before I set the drag by feel some of the smaller egg beaters reels have a 14lb drag max anyway so my tackle shop told me. your other question set the drag to your weakest link weather that be the main line or leader.
  14. Estuary Perch

    Where is this can I take my 4.3 runabout there?
  15. Supermarket (frozen) squid and octopus?

    I would say depends on your aim i.e as fragmiester said the pros swear by live squid but they do have a to fill a half day fishing time slot. But if you just want to catch a fish servo prawns will do. If I want to kill an hour or so doing what I love I would flick some lures its amazing what can happen.
