Different if your out and see school of salmon in the ocean. You cast out and try your luck. Or you go out from a pier or rocks chasing reds. Don’t just drop a bait in the fishes face.
Greedy people.


Make sure you don't chuck a line in where there is a chance of catching a fish......

If its all legal nothing you can do about it and if it was a.problem the greenies would have petitioned the govermant to make it a marine santuary.

So going by your theory you can catch reds which are mostly either on the way in or out of the bay for breeding so eliminating the breaders so they cant spawn.

Makes real sense not....

Most people were catching more on lures then bait, with the most popular being a curly tail soft plastic in motor oil colour.

I caught all mine with a size 1, 1/8 jig head teamed with a munroes soft plastics 2.5 inch curly tail in the caviar colour.

Don't really know how to attach this image, but this is the average size being pulled out on lures (someone post image if you can, on phone ATM)
