Any Tips on Garfish ?

Recommended Posts

So here I am in the creek breaking up bread for the Gar and they are loving it - However if one of those pieces of bread is on my tiny size 12 hook they dont want to know about it .. I was using 10lb fluro carbon leader too.. What am I doing wrong I ask ?

Your leader is way too heavy... maybe 2 to 4lb.... Berley up with breadcrumbs mixed with your oil you cook your fish in and use a No.12 hook and a small float and use a tiny piece of prawn. Dont strike either use a ultra light whippy rod and just lift once the flots shows a bite.

good luck

Make sure the only bread they have to eat is the stuff with a hook in it. When burleying bread dont throw in pieces, put it in a bucket of water and churn the hell out of it until the bread is pretty much dissolved in the water. They will be more likely to take your suss looking bread bits if there is no better offer.
