In spring fish maggots, pellets, meat or corn across to the island over a sprinkling of groundbait.
In summer, pellet across to the island. It is also possible to catch by spraying pellets at 2/3 of the way and fishing 1 foot deep.
Cat meat down the track and pellets size pieces of cat meat across to the island also work well.
