Fishing is great for mental health; it is calming, therapeutic and can even get your heart racing when you are chasing a big catch.
Seaprobe Deep Sea Fishing Charters on the Gold Coast are here to help ‘tackle’ the question of what the best bait is to use.
Location, Location, Location
Whilst many fishermen and women are happy to fish for hours on end without a catch, let’s be honest most of us want to take home a big catch we can gloat about.
To get the key ingredient in your fish supper, there are a few simple things you can do.
Firstly, it’s about location, location, location; this is the beauty of going on a Seaprobe Deep Sea Fishing Charter, we know all the best places to fish, so you can enjoy the fishing hotspots around the Gold Coast.
Baiting the Fish
Getting the right tackle is a great way to encourage the fish to bite.
The best type of bait is fresh, whether you use pilchards, prawns, beach worms, pippies, or smaller fish, the fish on the Gold Coast love a fresh feed.
When you can’t get hold of fresh fish it is a great investment to buy good quality bait.
Bait can often be less about what it is and more about presentation; YES, the Gold Coast fish are a sucker for a wonderfully presented meal. Keep it natural looking but leave enough of the hook open for the fish to bite down on.
If using frozen bait, it is important to thaw it thoroughly, the fish are more likely to bite when the bait has been thawed completely. A frozen, thawed, prawn that is presented properly is a great candidate for a hungry fish.
The team at Seaprobe Deep Sea Fishing Charters on the Gold Coast are on hand to assist with all your bait, and we can help hook it on your line so you can have the best chance of catching that BIG one.
When it comes to a sinker rig, the type, weight, and size sinker you will need will depend on what fish you are chasing, and the weather conditions; the team at Seaprobe Deep Sea Fishing Charters are well equipped with the knowledge and tools to assist you.
