BEST BEACH FISHING BAIT FOR FUN

There’s an ideal bait to use for every purpose. Beach fishing for fun is for the laid-back anglers who love to go to the beach, cast their line, sit back and get tons of fish. It may take a while before you can catch a fish, but it’s always worth the wait.

Live or fresh shrimp is first on the list. Shrimps stay on the hook better, but just be sure to remove some of the hard outer covering so it stays in place. This is also a good option for newbie anglers who are just starting to learn how to fish.

Sand Fleas are ideal if you want something convenient and free. Sand Fleas are easy to find on the beach and are a favourite meal of fishes. However, they’re not always available at the beach since they’re mostly picked off and die easily.

Fish bites are for you if you don’t like frozen bait. They come in a variety of scents and flavours. They give you toughness and can stand the hook pretty well. If you want convenience and don’t want a bait that’ll perish, it’s a good idea to give it a shot.

BEST BEACH FISHING BAIT FOR COMPETITION

Some of the most common baits for beach fishing are pilchards, garfish, whitebait and sandworm. However, bigger fishes will usually require bigger baits like fish heads and squid heads.

Fresh fillets of salmon or trevally, a strip of squid or fresh squid heads are most preferred baits if you’re targeting a Mulloway. In catching a shark, take note that they’re less particular with their diet, so using oily fish such as salmon and mackerel are some of your best options out there.

TAKE NOTE: Fresh baits tend to spoil easily, so make sure to check fresh baits frequently after 10 to 15 minutes, and renew baits regularly if needed.

Each beach fishing bait serves their purpose to catch your ideal fish. Now, that you know a few tips on what suits best for the fish that you want to catch and where these fishing baits are usually found. You must try it now, you’ll thank us later.
