New Zealand Fishing World - - Catching Bait -

A novel way of catching piper is to wade a shel­tered bay at night with a lantern or torch. They will come right up close to you and they are very easy to scoop up with a lit­tle hand net.

Use the small ones for bait but keep the larger ones for sup­per; they are one of the tasti­est fish around. Clean them and poke the bill through the body down to­wards the tail so it forms a dough­nut shape. Coat with flour and quick fry un­til they are a nice golden brown then straighten the fish up and the whole spine will sep­a­rate from the flesh.
