Targetting them with the lures, or as a bycatch for Bream and the like?

I was fishing for bream etc Sammy and I started catching smaller soapies with the bream so I started playing around with different lures etc then all I was catching was soapies upto about 3 to 4kg

 

Sure put up a good fight on light gear Shorething caught around Mandurah not just that location in the photos everwhere really just had to keep swapping locations until I found a few, i live on the canals and was getting them regular at the bottom of my garden

 

Cheers

Hi Beau the hardbodies that I have had most success are

 

strikepro 2.5cm micro vibe all colours ( except the golden coloured one) one thing I do with this lure is change the treble hook as I found the ones they come with bend and snap too easily  -

river 2 sea baby vibe 35mm - mainly the darker colour ones

the strikepro is my favourite - (especially purple back pinkish bodied one) not sure colour code number

 

Hi Shorething - catching soapies, bream, herring, tailor and whiting in the back garden is awesome !!

 

cheers for the comments lads
