 they will take almost anything when you burley up. i have found a small strip of squid works well and wont come off the hook as easily as prawn or mulie. just outside john ledge is good for skippy and herring

Unweighted bait is best and the deeper you let the bait get down the better.
Bluebaits if they are real picky, but I prefer the strip of squid tube (or better still, a fresh piece of the squids long tentacle), because you can let the skippy hook themselves.

The last big ones I caught were on lime green Big Johns Jigs, they were going nuts over it.
