    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    I certainly don't have this done pat by any means, hell, only my 3rd go - over past 18 months So I filleted the Tommies and butterflied the Gar and put them in a brine of 1lt water, 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup of brown sugar and in the fridge for 24 hours+. Got my 'deluxe' Mojiko smoker ready but only had Samba Poultry/Pork chips, so they had to do. Smoke vent was only just open a tad and smoking well. Thought maybe 45 minutes but this 30 minutes in, so them off. Look over done to me compared to other that have a darkish tan, but they tasted ok - a little dry maybe. The Gar didn't have as much darkness to it and the taste was milder than the tommies. Practice, Practice and Practice ...... and catch more fish would help too

    Buying live worms?

    Seaweed worms belong to the phylum Annelida subclass oligocheata. I suspect the term "garden worm" is used to denote the subclass oligocheata and differentiate them from the polychaete subgroup (tube worms, beach worms, blood worms etc). "Aquatic oligochaetes are closely related, and quite similar, to earthworms. There are over 3100 species of terrestrial, marine and freshwater oligochaetes worldwide. Ten families of freshwater oligochaetes occur in Australia, represented by over 90 species. In South Australia, there are at least 35 known species." https://www.epa.sa.gov.au/files/8543_critters.pdf

    Thanks very much David and Doobie, I'll be sure to update you with pics when I eventually get time to go for them. Do they keep well? Say if I wanted to get them one day and fish the next couple of days?

    Low tide is best but really depends on the area. I get them around outer harbour but have heard of people getting them around somerton park (south). They do work well metro but spots are kept as secret as possible, as they can be overfished very easily

    Buying live worms?

    I recently read a PIRSA document that says seaweed worms are the same species as garden worms. So I'm wondering if you could just dig garden worms and get YFW with them By the way the easiest way to get worms is to dig under your compost pile if you have one. I can get worms in about 2 minutes from my backyard just by digging where my compost pile is.

    Sports Fishing Scene has great tube worms, I was reading a report recently of a guy that bought these worms and bagged out on YFW.

    I would suggest Brighton Tackle and Bait or Fishing Wholesalers. I've tried beach worming but have onky got a couple in a few hours. In the same time, my mate will get 50+ - he doesn't miss many worms he targets. I used to get tube worms near the subbase but haven't been there for around a decade! Seaweed worms can be plentiful but normally only look for them on yorkes. The other option you have is to get a good quality bait pump and get some nippers. Fish love them and they are plentiful if you keep your eye out for their holes

    Ray Annes, when I lived in the suburbs they never failed me. They should have all those worms, don't know about nightcrawlers though. You're better off learning to get you're own bait though, buying worms becomes expensive very quickly. It's also very satisfying when you learn how to obtain a new bait source, it's like learning to catch a new species of fish

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Still don't look half bad, Doobie. Don't mind a bit of "fish jerky" myself when things are in a touch too long I've done away with the wet brine myself and just sprinkle with salt and sugar before smoking now, saves a lot of time and I don't notice the difference tbh.

    No they don't keep well at all. if you want to use them live you have to use them pretty much straight away. if you have an aerator you can maybe keep them alive for a couple days.

    Like David says, low tides are best for finding them and just look for all the holes in sand - a youtube video should help understand the 'hows'. I've got mine down Moana way only as I live this way and not tried anywhere else. https://www.fishingtackleshop.com.au/products/wilson-30-inch-bait-nipper-yabby-pump.html I'd suggest to buy the longer ones as it makes it easier to down into the sand and of course more depth.

    Buying live worms?

    I've found them pretty good, but a better quality one is better than the cheap BigW/K-mart ones etc. I also washed them down when getting home due to some sand being left inside the tube. What does annoy me though, was after only using it for about 4 sessions and then stored for about 8 months, I found the rubber part around the washer had crumbled. I was annoyed with this, so contacted Wilsons and they sent me 2 replacements (nice of them seeing I purchased from BCF?). But they said the washers do not last long anyway, but buying replacements are not expensive.

    Like Underpants says, tiger worms are quite simple to set up and continue to to good numbers/product. But tiger worms will die very quickly if using in salt water. I was desperate once and purchased tiger worms from a store to use in salt water - never again ... expensive and were dead quickly. I wont buy tube/beach worms at all, just far too expensive for a couple of them. Best to practice, practice and practice sourcing your own from the beaches. Even seaweed worms are easy to get, just find very old seaweed sitting high on the sands and start scrounging through the weed to find them - excellent bait.

    Been pretty happy with tube and beach worms from ray & anns, not cheap but they almost always have them and are fresh.

    Setup a worm farm with your own tigers is pretty simple. I've even got a healthy population in my compost bins. Then when you want some bait turn the bin over a bit til you find them. Even easier to collect if its a worm farm. Store in a little plastic tub with a bit of compost or moistened coir fibre. Sheldon's Bait does "Catchall Crawlers" which are available locally i think these appear to be bigger than tigers.

    Bit of a feed at least. In the right conditions you can get mulloway snapper sharks and kingfish.

    wirinna breakwater anything being caught?

    When the marina was first built, we used to get schoolies inside the marina. Right next to the pontoon that the KI ferry used to dock onto.The pontoon is gone, but the concrete that it used to be bolted to is still there.Hot Feb arvos as the sun went down, pillies for bait.On the outside, cast out a Tommy under a float and get the squid whilst you burley up the gar n Tommys.
