Found these goodies on Rex's Site. I think you other guys will need them.

Bays and Estuaries
Bays and estuaries are common throughout Australia and offer great fishing for a wide variety of species that can often be found in large numbers.

When fishing bays and estuaries look for drop-offs, channels and weed beds as these areas will hold concentrations of fish. Whether you are drifting or anchored in a boat or fishing from the shore, these areas are great places to find a wide variety of fish species.

To improve your results and concentrate fish to your area, a fine continuous trail of berley such as chicken pellets, bread or small fish pieces will help to improve your results. Another tip to remember is to fish on a tide change as the fish feed more actively.

Flathead can be found regularly throughout bays and estuaries as they lie in wait along drop-offs, weed beds and gutters. Anglers can improve their results on flathead by keeping the bait slowly moving across the bottom

Mullet/Garfish Beach rig
Quill or pencil flat rig
Prawn pieces
Bread
Worms

Mullet and garfish are commonly found throughout bays and estuaries, they are most commonly found around weed beds. Berley such as breadcrumbs soaked in tuna oil will improve results, as it will bring fish from a wide area.


Species Rigs Baits
Mulloway General running rig
Floater rig
Live mullet
Fresh Squid
Live yellowtail
Tips
Mulloway are a large shy fish mainly caught at night where they feed around reefs and gutters. To catch one of these creatures you will need to have the freshest bait possible and be very patient. When one does grab your bait allow it time to move off with it as mulloway will often mouth the bait before swallowing it.


Species Rigs Baits
Tailor Ganged hook rig
Bobby cork gang rig
Pilchards
Whitebait
Garfish
Tips
Tailor fish are veracious feeders that travel in schools and can often be seen feeding as they splash through the surface of the water especially around dawn and dusk. Another way of finding tailor is to troll or spin along deep drop-offs with small metal lures.


Species Rigs Baits
Snapper Floater rig
General running rig
Bottom rig
Pilchards
Squid
Prawns

Tips
Snapper are shy feeders often caught around the dawn and dusk periods. Best methods include lightly berleying and fishing with lightly weighted baits. As with mulloway allow snapper time to eat the bait.
