Thanx for the advice surfrod. I have a thing about livebaits. I’ve watched sharks and rays and kingis play with them the way a cat plays with a mouse. They have huge attraction properties over a deadbait. Like even with deadbaits I still like a livebait out just to attract fish and get them worked up to bite at the deadbaits. You’re right though. Huge gap in the food chain with no kahawai and another huge gap with no kingfish or snapper. I’ve done some research and I agree that couta probably won’t work as a livebait. Apparently they die real fast just like everybody has been telling me.
I’ll try a few super strength berleys and see what shows up.
