Bait selection

 Perfect weather on Wednesday good ground fish on the screen, fished with occy, squid, cuttlefish, whiting, herring and jigs for no return then caught a small sergant baker thought that looks likely bait. Seconds after it hit the bottom dinner for all. Just goes to show how selective they can be if not that hungry.
