See a lot of big eels when Im fishing for mullet off the Avondale Rd bridge …….they come out of the weed and suck the bait off the hook …..
Can see them with polaroid glasses , I recall fishing off the bridge as a kid and often watching rod tips slowly dip then pop back up ….we always assumed it was weed midwater drifting with the tide , pulling the line before breaking apart under the strain ……but no , its them bloody eels ….

I suggest using a larger bait , with a keeper hook , and striking once the bait’s sucked in ……
