TOP END SPORTFISHING
NT, Darwin, Australia (AUS)
Live bait fishing is a style that is used to target large fish species by using smaller "live" fish species as natural bait. You will let the bait swim naturally to attract predator fish that might be in the area you are fishing.
For this style of fishing, you can either use a standard fishing reel or the overhead variety. This along with a strong rod that is not required to be overly long will do the job perfectly.
You will then need to have a strong and reliable hook and in some cases a wire trace depending on the fish species you are targetting.
This is another of the fishing techniques that can be used throughout a wide variety of different locations around the world. There is no real right or wrong area to try this style of fishing but it is mainly used in the sea and ocean chasing large predator fish species.
