    Yup they are king prawns, got a heap from countdown @ $9.95kg on special and packed them into trip sized bags.
    I always tie baits on as it means you never have those casts where the bait flies off half way thru. You can either use them whole on a 2 hook rig (1/0keeper and 3/0 or 4/0 main hook) or just the tail on a single 3 or 4/0 hook.
