All fish will take dead bait when they're hungry enough, scavenging fish will take them more readily though. Fishes like catfish, stingray, sharks, tuskfish, sicklefish, golden trevally, just to name a few, won't mind taking dead baits.

ok thanks! :)
(P.s: my uncle went fishing at labrador park today, used dead prawn and float, caught a 1 metre long Todak or needlefish. another malay uncle caught 2 "larger than dinner plate sized" stingrays and another angler caught a 1kg plus grouper...) :fish2:

Wah! Really? Lab Park seems very dead to be. Many reviews had been on negative side after it officially opened.

They were fishing at the jetty?

What setup and rig were they using? Do you happen to know? Cast super far or near jetty?

they fish near the jetty at breakwater on the leagal side, i think the malay uncle and the other angler use either LSBF or Apollo 2 hook rig to catch stingrays and grouper respectively... however i heard the angler who caught the grouper was fishing from the illegal side of the jetty...not sure about the malay uncle though, could be fishing from the legal side of the breakwater... :) :fish2:
