You can’t go wrong with Pilchards. Readily consumed by almost every sport fish out there but also great for targeting Snapper. Day-in, day-out, the most effective and easily used Snapper bait.
Also, our Pilchards are damn cheap to buy.
Our free-flow pilchards are a way better product than a solid frozen block. You can tell the difference when the two types are thawed. The block turns to a soft mush and no one likes soft mush (unless we’re talking smooshed up ice cream) but our free flow Pilchards still remain quite firm.
Now, don’t start your fishing day by thawing your pilchards out! Those rock-hard, frozen pilchards might make baiting up a little more difficult, but they also resist bites better and aren’t so prone to falling off the hook.
Try putting a half a Pillie on the hook. No, I’m not being a tight-wad. The half a Pillie will release juices and oils more readily, encouraging our Snapper mates for a quick grab and run. And Bingo, you just got caught yourself dinner.
