this type of fish best not to use float and colour line cux they have very sharp eyes. can use small hook as their mouth is not that big.the best is to use bread as bait but don't press the bread too on the hook .the fish don't dive deep for bait, they normally eat floating bread. If fish at mac be carefull of tortise they will steal bread.
