You'll find doesnt matter

You'll find doesnt matter wat you use you wont get a hit unless they're there. Main thing is to find them first to cast to likely spots and just persists.

Before suggesting, what have you thrown at em so far?.......what leader have you been using? and are they aware of your presence?

I chased them for a while

I chased them for a while and its good fun! But Ryan is absolutly correct for a change!lol. Na hehehehe You have to be very quiet as quiet as chasing big bream around jetties when walking on them. I fished with 6lb mainline and 10lb flouro leader which worked a treat and you could go lighter but they do and will rub you off in structure. Jig head 1/16.

Keep it tight, reeeeeeel tight!

Best is to find

Tue, 2007-10-02 16:44

Best is to find them...Burley up with half mulies and get em feeding then lob a half mulie out with no sinker and let it sink amoungst the burley trail.

Trick is to find where they are first

Went looking for some today. Managed to score one today. Only a tiny one but none the less....a sambo on POPPER!!. Absolutely belted it. Was using a 5cm popper of some sort.... after that nothing for over an hour.

how small was the "small" one you hooked? Mine was under 30cm and on 8lb bream gear...didnt really pull that hard compare to a bream of similar size...

i hooked and landed one of over 40cm a couple of weeks ago. The one i was onto yesterday went as hard if not harder than that one so i assume roughly the same size.   I have had my fair share of good bream and i reckon that these guys fight harder and dirtier!
