You must use a really small hook ans small bait like prawns they tend to have small mouth hope im right
Usually its not where you fish but how you fish .

Yes, you can catch them using tamban jigs but do bait the hooks with prawn meat. I've seen quite a few rabbitfishes landed at the 'T' intersection but most of which are rather small in size.

You can use bread, but it comes off quite easily especially when there's strong current and other small fishes at the bottom nibbling on your bait. You don't jig them like tamban do, just let it stay still at the bottom.

You can try for rabbit fish at West Coast park during high tides. I've seen many retirees using bread and a long fishing pole to land rabbit fish. :)

Rabbitfish does put up a tough fight relative to its size. If there is a 1 kg rabbitfish one the line, it's going to give you a hard time compared to a 1 kg chermin.
