Bottom bouncing.

Drifting or anchored, dangling a couple of baits above a snapper sinker is an Aussies favourite technique for catching big reds and coral trout as they are all great fighters and delicious eating.


Trawl miles of the Pilbara coast. The more time you spend trolling lures the more ground you’re going to cover and the more game fish you’re going to catch.


Jigging is becoming one of Australia’s favourite technique for catching big reds and coral trout as they are all great fighters on little gear.
