Is it worth throwing over a bait when anchoring for the night at the sky show ??

Hi guys


I will be anchoring in the swan for the night  when the skyshow is on. Just wondering if its worth throwing a bait in after dark ?? And if so what bait, rig etc.


I normally anchor up in front of the Hyatt or round abouts.


Anyone got any thoughts ???

I would have a crab net down as well, Always worth having at least 1 line in the water too.

I'd probably use a peeled river prawn if your in the Swan. You never know, could catch a flatty, tailor or bream.

If you time the fuse right you could probably get away with using dynamite :-)
