Snap frozen fresh and ready to use. Prawns are great bait for fishing!
Target Species Prawns will catch a variety of species, irrespective of their bottom or surface preferences, their not being many fish who will resist a well presented prawn. Prawns will be readily accepted by a wide range of species including: Silver trevally, salmon, Bream, Flathead, Mullet, Mackerel, Leatherjacket, Wrasse, Whiting, Warehou (Snotty Nose Trevally) and many more. Prawns are one of the best all round baits for our sometimes finicky feeding bream. Prawns would also remain one of the commonly used flathead baits. Mostly because of their relatively tough flesh staying on the hook particularly well when targeting species in our bay and offshore regions.
Rigging and Gear There is no specialised prawn fishing gear. Standard spinning tackle being quite sufficient. Some prefer to use as light a line as possible fishing between 1-4 kg (depending on conditions) Normally a small piece of leader is recommended, especially when dealing with fish renowned for biting through line (species such as bream, wrasse, leatherjacket and flathead). Again rod length is not important with it being entirely up to the individual. A thread line reel is the most practical and affordable to use. A standard running sinker is the most effective rig to use, although depending on the fishing conditions a paternoster rig always works wonders. The size of hook used is dependent on the size of bait being used. If using a small live bait shrimp a small size 8 or even 10 would be quite sufficient. On the other hand if using a large king prawn (which tastes better on your plate rather than a fish) a size 4 may be needed. Chemically sharpened hooks are a great style of hook to use, octopus, red coated hooks, the red working as a great camouflage when hidden in a prawn.
