Hey all sorry this is my first report back in a while as i have had motor trouble with my boat and the mechanic just cant seem to get it right time after time. First will start with flathead: Dedicated 2 sessions to flathead this week purely using hard bodies and soft plastics which included mainly of smith cherry bloods, lively lures and Berkley gulp 4". First session was very successful landing around 12 flattys ranging from 50cm-70cm, I lost 2 really big guys im saying 90cm plus as i was using 6lb mainline onto a 8lb leader and could not set the hooks as well as i would have liked and in return they came up to the surface and did there usual headshakes and popped my hooks. Most were released but i think we took home 3 as they are one of my favourite fish to eat. also got a nice whiting on a cherry blood couldnt believe it haha. On the second session i noticed the water temperature on my sounder was around 4 degrees colder than the previous day we had gone and straight away we struggled to get a hit. after trolling for 2 hours we had landed another 2 around the 50cm mark and decided to call it quits. Also had 2 sessions out at the mouth of the river chasing snapper and jewies on big dead baits and plastics. The got 2 squire on plastics 1 at 43cm and and one at 46cm using 6lb mainline to 8lb flurocarbon which was awsome fun and took my a while to get in. The bigger snapper were caught using dead pike fillets and squid floating down with small ball sinkers. and my mates zane and michael managed to bag one each aswell around the 50cm mark. Jewies were all caught on dead baits aswell but didnt manage to get one over the 70cm mark landing around 5 all up. Most of the fish were released. Hope you enjoy!
