  1. Flatties aren't too hard to catch, probly the best entry level fish for plastics fishing and to build a bit of confidence. It all depend what i chase as to what i use. With the little school jews i like to run 6-10lb main line with a 10lb leader
  2. It all comes down to trial and error mate. Just out the time in and if something isn't working mix it up a little. Fish lighter if you still dont get any bites. If the water is really clear use a natural colour, if the water is really dirt use something darker as that will cast more of a shadow from the plastic and get you the bite. Cab river can be very hit and miss mate. Some days ots in fire and other days you could be on the water for 8 hours and still get a donut. As for jacks im still het to get one on a lure or plastic. I have probly put in over 2000 cast and about 150 plus hours of fishing for nothing so far
  3. It all depends on what you are chasing and the condition of the water as to what plastic you want to use
  4. I got a few just using a runnin size 4 ball sinker, a 6/0 hook with half a pillie. Drop it to the bottom and get ready
  5. Yeah mate they sure do, its marked on the navionics app. Just look along the beach and its marked as a wreck
  6. Are you talking about the one off woorim? Its marked on the navionics app
  7. Finding new ground is always hard. Id suggest doing a few trips and finding some mark and next time your out so drifts over that area with the engine off. That or drift over the reef with engine off and mark out grounds while drifting over it then re-drift it with some rids out. Not %100 on the sounder tho, just keen it on and see how you go, id they are still shutting down mabey try without it. A mate of mine does really well at the time of year and also gets 80cn spangled emperor( i think thats what there called)
  8. Nice fish and report mate. I find when fishing reefs for snapper you should never drive over where you are planning on fishing. Pull up away from the reef and figure out a drift pattern. Then figure out where you need to be to gwt the best drift over the reef while remaining stealth. Engine noise can shut down the fish or even spook them. There are some really good grounds out off the cape with consistent snapper around the 85cm mark
  9. Yeah mate it sure does, there is a patch of coffee rock where they like to lay. Its probly one om my favoure landbased spots. But there are definitely bettwr spots in the passage
  10. Nice work mate. Where you got that bream, keep walking towards the jetty and where the wall ends is a really good flathead spot. Fished it a fair but last year and seen a video of an 88cm caught there aswell. Here is a pic of a little one i got there last year, not a big fish but got it 3rd cast. You can see the end of the wall in the pic that im talking about
  11. I have decided that im going to go for a fish thursday morning chasing flathead. (It gets boring going out by yourself so i wouldn't mind some company.) I would leave mine at 5am and be at the ramp by 5.30. Can either meet at mine and i can drive out or meet at the ramp. I dont want fuel money or help cleaning the boat just bring your own fishing gear, food and drinks. Depending on how the fish are biting as to how long i stay out but will definitely be back at the ramp by 12.30 at the latest. If your keen and interested then let me know. Cheers josh
  12. Im thinking about heading out to bribie Thursday morning for a flathead sesh if anyone is interested, north side or south i dont care, i dont ask for anything like fuel money or help cleaning the boat. Just turn up and bring your own gear, drinks and lunch.
  13. Im easy. I will just target what ever the species are. I have done a few facebook comps run very similar to this one. They had bass, bream and talapia in one, jew and threadies in another and flathead and snapper in the other. That way it was all fair and more variety of fish for both landbased and boat anglers
  14. Im %99 sure that its a pikey bream.
