When the mullet are running in the estuaries, sometimes the bream will only go for the mullet. If that's the case a whole sea mullet

could serve you well. In Berowra, Where I usually fish that is usually late April-May. if you are fishing for bream try chicken breast if the water is relatively clear? If the water is dirty I usually do very nicely on chicken gut.

Mullet strips are famous in Forster for bait fishos - specially using hand lines. They let the unweighted strip waft down the incoming tide ..... in the leases ...... and just hang on for a massive blue nose to grab it!! Using rods, it takes longer to register the 'hit' and are often broken off!

Handlines are the way to go in snaggy territory with bait, I reckon!! Up here, anyway!! :D
