Cudas are also a good bait. A tennis ball size chunk on a 10/0 hook works well if you are casting it. Bigger if you are dropping it straight down. Don't bury the hook in the bait. Leave the barb and plenty of the bend free so you can get a good hook set. Use a long steel leader. Black Tip are good eating but they should be gill and tail cut to get the blood out before they die.
