Hi All,
New to fishing here, I recently moved to Sydney from Auckland. Here I went to the store and got size 2 hooks, running sinkers, frozen prawn and pilchards. I cut the pilchards to 3 and was also taught how to half hitch the bait.
To my surprise, even with every parameter changed, the same thing that used to happen before happens here as well: I cast, I make sure the line is taught, nothing happens, I check it 5 minutes later and the bait is gone. Not even entirely sure what happens to the bait.
Meanwhile the guy next to me keeps reeling in fish left and right! I asked him for advice, but he didn't know what I was doing wrong. He also used frozen bait.
I also tried cotton before and it didn't help.
Lost and frustrated, though it must have happened to others before I couldn't find too much information on it... tips will be much appreciated.

I’m pretty sure you’re looking for a real bass fishing forum. This is a forum for bass that are not bass. We call them bass, but largemouth are actually the largest member of Centrarchidae.

Just a guess, you’re being picked clean by crabs or pinfish. I usually switch to squid when it gets annoying.

Yeah, the last Aussie that posted was looking for some LBG action.


I just googled LBG. I think that‘s what Aussies call bank fishing.
