Gold Coast Bait

At Viking Tackle and Boat Sales we provide an extensive range of live and frozen bait along with a friendly team who can help you select the right option for your fishing trip.

  • Pilchards

    Pilchards are excellent bait fish for catching snapper and are at their most effective when rigged whole.

  • Squid

    Squid is a popular bait as it is effective on a variety of fish species. The most commonly used portion of the squid used for bait is the head.

  • Prawns

    When using prawn bait we recommend feeding your hook through the tail first and out the head to ensure it stays put.

  • Sand worms

    Sand worms are the best bait for beginner fisherman as they are inexpensive, easy to rig and can be used to catch both freshwater and saltwater fish.

  • Chicken gut

    One of the easiest bait types to rig, chicken gut is always a great choice for catching bream.
