Lollipops Catch Herring

Dr. Darryn Rennie

The lollipop Chupa Chups are great for catching herring particularly in the Australind Estuary. Ask a child to lick the lollipop then give the white stick a wash. Cut the stick in half and pass a piece of stainless steel wire through the stick and tie on a treble hook. The result is a home made lure.

I troll with the lure about 20m behind a dingy in the Estuary.  Herring and Tailor go for this lure. Fried fresh herring fillets are high in Omega-3 and are great for your health. Click here for information Omega-3.
