Piper While most people regard fresh piper (garfish) as one of the ‘ultimate’ snapper and kingfish baits, those in the know also appreciate this ‘upside-down-marlin’ for its table qualities.
The easiest way to catch these little guys is to drag a bait-net in the surf line or along a beach or mudflat, but the job can be made much more challenging by using a rod and reel!
Fine line in the two-kilo range is perfect. Attach a float, a small length of trace and a size 20 or 22 sprat hook and you are ready to go. A great bait is a coarse dough made from flour and a little water and rolled with cotton wool to keep it together. Otherwise, slightly wet a small piece of bread, which can then be balled up around the hook. Other baits include processed cheese, pipi or squid, the secret being to keep it small – no larger than an average- sized pea.
