King George Whiting, next to Snapper and Flathead, has got to be one of the most sought-after saltwater fish in Southern Australia.
They put up a bit of a fight, can be quite common and have great textured flesh for the table.
A paternoster rig is probably one of the best rigs for targetting Whiting. These can be augmented with glow beads, coloured skirting and ultra-violet material. Whiting will take a variety of fleshy baits and soft plastic lures.
