''There's an old saying that the two most critical ingredients in successful fishing are a strong knot and a sharp hook, so we will focus on those absolute fundamentals and get the kids knot tying,'' he says. ''We'll also focus on only catching what you need, handling fish correctly, releasing undersize fish and making sure they are healthy and swim off and not littering the marine environment.'' Teaching kids to fish is satisfying, he says. ''It's just amazing to watch a kid's face light up when they hook their first fish. Mind you,'' he adds, ''some kids are just horrified by the whole experience and don't want to do it ever again.'' Bait for beginners Bruce Schumacher will be sharing some of his expertise about bait at this year's Sydney International Boat Show. He'll be talking about collecting, preserving and presenting bait, including some of the regulations involved in collecting it. Sydney Harbour, for example, is a protected zone, so digging or pumping for bait such as nippers is prohibited. Quite a few of the fish species commonly found around Sydney's angling hot spots (see graphic) ''will eat anything'', he says, but they still have their preferences. Bream, for example, will take cheese or even chicken gut but they prefer prawns. Prawns are generally the most common bait used for recreational fishing and you can get them from any bait shop. If you fancy a challenge, you can also scoop them yourself, even in Sydney. ''Prawns can be scooped during the no-moon nights in summer from some of the upstream bays such as Hen and Chicken Bay and around Putney,'' Schumacher says. As a general guide, Schumacher says, ''you should use bait the fish would normally feed on that is local to the area and you should present it as the fish expects to see it. They're not smart creatures but . . . they know what a prawn looks like, for example, so you try to present your bait in the same way.'' Here is the bait preferred by more of the fish species found in and around Sydney: Blackfish (luderick) Green weed or cabbage. Flathead Pilchards, whitebait, prawns, live poddy mullet, lures. Groper Red crabs. Kingfish Preferably live yellowtail, mackerel, squid; dead baits such as mullet, squid, pilchards. Mulloway Beach worms, yellowtail or tailor fillet, whole small squid. Snapper Prawns, pilchards, squid, soft plastic lures. Tailor Pilchards, lures. Trevally Prawns, pilchards, blood or beach worms. Whiting Worms, nippers.
