Easy Bait For Snapper?

Postby TheLoneTurtle » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:51 pm

Hey guys
What are some easy baits you can catch fresh for snapper LANDBASED.
I don't really know what good bait i can catch besides squid but i suck at jigging only ever caught 2 squid in my life.
Also any spots to catch this "bait".
Do gummy baits work for snapper too, e.g. trevally, salmon, pike/snook, etc.
Cheers guys :thumbsup:

Parrot fish fillets. Wrasse. Whatever you wanna call them. Catch easily off rocky areas

Mullet, plenty everywhere. Maribyrenong river, barwon heads river or the yarra. Baytrout fillet, plenty in barwonheads atm. Chicken breast fillet soaked in tuna oil, plenty at the super market. Or a bag of frozen pilchard from the servo is an easy option too. ;-) goodluck
