Bait at E shed freo

Hey Guys,

              After expert knowledge !!

              What bait are they catching at E shed in freo at the moment ? How are they catching the bait ? - do they use pre rigged bait jigs ?

              Do tides / wind / morning / late arvo or whatever make a diiference ?

Thanks Redfin,

                     You guys tried salting the scalies/slimies down and used later on ? And if you have, do they keep they're freshness ?

Never salted.They stay fresh enough.I just freeze them into a block.But i still prefer the good old mulie over them.Get more strikes.

I will probably hit E shed

I will probably hit E shed tomorrow afternoon Redfin and try your advice !

I like mulies, but they are so hit and miss to find a decent bag that do not turn to mush after a few hours - I have tried keeping them on ice to stay fresh, but sometimes they are just crap and bloody expensive.

Been getting sharked on jigs out at the wrecks lately and that's bloody expensive too !!

Maybe it's time too go back to basics with a sinker and bait and recoup some credits in the wallet/credit card !!
