Dependant on the fish you are chasing, the bait will vary. Here are a few tips.

  * Natural bait sources are the best - prawn, whitebait, sandworm, or shell
  * Lures can work also, especially for surf fishing and for some other variety of fish
    like tailor or bream.
  *Always consult a local fishing club or bait shop for the best choice.
