Whenever watching a fishing tv show they always seem to catch live bait like maasbunker or mackeral with ease before venturing to the deeper reefs in search of cob or trawling for gamefish.

I have tried catching these smaller baitfish, but all I ever seem to catch on a sabiki is Steentjies, Steentjies for africa. I have used steentjie fillet before and have caught some nice reds, but I was wondering if a live steentjie rigged with a circle left on the bottom would work?

I am specifically targetting the bigger bottomfish like Cob or geelbek.
