I’d say just about anything. I usually just chop up any old bait I have, red cod etc. I remember once I somehow left some squid outside, out of the freezer, and it got infested with maggots. So I bagged it up and took to timaru wharf to throw in, and it attracted loads of mullet. Some of the burley products you can buy work pretty well also.16/01/2009 at 12:57 am #12208
lol sweet i got some squid some old tarakahi and stuff in the freezer should be good, not sure I like the idea of maggots though!
Any idea what a cats net costs? I had a look on trademe and there was only one on sale and it was $90 I reckon I could get one for cheaper.17/01/2009 at 7:19 am #12222

bread slurry works fine as a cheap burley for mullet, save all your stale bread up and mix it to a paste with lots of water and ladel it in.
Cast nets work best in shallower water too, mine was a gift so not sure what it cost.17/01/2009 at 10:05 pm #12233
lol yeah “Cast” net , shallow water yee say? Well I’ll burley up at taieri mouth see what comes, and if a trout or 3 should happen to be attracted…. well thats an added bonus17/01/2009 at 10:20 pm #12234
Careful there young fellow. You might want to consult the Fish and Game regulations with regard to “preparations”…18/01/2009 at 3:23 am #12236
I was joking… I’m no poacher. The whole thing of fishing is enjoying the catch not just throwing a net on a fish like that,
With bait fish being the exception.
