is Cheesy Garlic Trout Dough Bait legal to make and use here in new zealand, just curious and thought I had better ask “others” who might know before actually trying it and get in trouble with fisheries NZ lol. I have also seen on the web cheese and marshmellows trout like too, any ideas anyone ??

Most likely to be illegal.07/01/2010 at 2:48 am #14602lalandiParticipant
A recent change in the rules has been made to accommodate the use of soft plastics.
I think the wording of the change is a little ambiguous. It reads
Uncoloured bread dough.
Any scented lure constructed of, or treated with, elements that have chemical attractant properties.
later on it states:
LURE means any authorised artificial fly, spinner or bait.
So… My interpretation is that if you bought your cheesy garlic trout dough from a tackle store and molded it to look like a fish egg or bug and were fishing in bait permitted waters then yes. Legal.
Not really my cup o char, but whatever blows your hair back.
Any other interpretations?07/01/2010 at 3:17 am #14603MiliwolfParticipant
My interpretation is that if the Cheesy Garlic trout dough is purchased from a tackle store already in the form of a fish/ egg/bug it would be legal. But if you make your own Cheesy garlic trout dough, or purchase the dough and mould it into the shape of a egg/bug it would be illegal.
If you get your friend to make the trout dough, then they mould it into a bug/egg/lure and you purchase the bug/lure from them it would be legal because you are purchasing a scented lure. Very poorly written legalisatio.n14/01/2010 at 5:00 am #14698
My 2c worth, dough is dough (just dont colour it), ensure you have a licence & are fishing in waters alowing bait fishing. Go get the buggers!02/08/2011 at 5:52 am #18472Mike HParticipant
