Hi All, i'm still trying to work out some tactics for local saltwater jetty fishing (noob trial and error!) and had a few questions that are probably more obvious to answer than i think.....
1) How to tell which way the current is flowing?
2) A good artifical bait for bottom or float fishing (alternative for when the tamban aren't around)?
3) Despite best effort (bucket with air pump, water changes etc.) the tamban can die before i get to fish them, are they still good as a 'dead bait'?
4) Bait theives!! - several times at bedok i used tamban on a basic sliding sinker rig, and no matter where i placed the hook (head, back, rear) i was reeling in the sad remains of a nibbled carcass but had no actual bites - are fish now so clever they chew around my hook?? I guess maybe i needed a smaller (artificial?) bait and smaller hook (used size 2) to combat this, or some other method?
