Many anglers regard live nippers or saltwater yabbies as being the most effective of all estuary baits. To obtain these highly enticing forms of live bait, there are two crucial items you need by your side. The first of these is a nipper pump to draw them out of the sand or mud, and the second being a bait sieve to collect them.
All you need to do with it is squirt the sand from a nipper/bait pump directly into the sieve. Then you can swirl the sand around until it drops through the tiny holes, leaving the nippers and yabbies visible and easy to gather.
You can even use the sieve in deep water by attaching a floatation device. Recommended options include a 16-inch bicycle tyre tube or pool noodle. Simply attach the device with the aid of electrical zip ties to firmly secure the sieve. Keep the sieve close by attaching a rope or cord between it and your body.
