  1. I smoke my travally and if done right they are very moist and taste delicious. This is the brine recipe I use.
  2. I went out trolling again this arvo, same spot as yesterday. I went out and found another lure much the same as the one I lost yesterday. Only got one today but definitely happy with it. I let her go too to live another day.
  3. Manns s 20+ grey ghost It was the best lure in my tackle and now its gone.
  4. I was using 20lb braid on a Calcutta 400 attached to a custom built 6kg rod. I had a 16lb leader. It was just that the line wrapped around him. It was mayhem as I was fishing alone.
  5. Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture but will hopefully get some this arvo and will get some pics. Also Unfortunately that lure I lost is very hard to come by these days. My friend tells me he has 5 and will send me a couple. Colour was grey ghost.
  6. I have a big net sitting in my garage perfect for fish of that size. It will be going with me this arvo. Yes definitely nice to know flathead of that size do still exist.
  7. That's a nice yak. Shame you only got one fish but would've been a great just being there.
  8. I moved to the Sunshine Coast two years ago and have been catching a lot of big flathead. So I've been doing some research into the pumicestone passage. I found that metre+ flathead were known captures around October. So yesterday I decided to do some trolling around Caloundra. One 42cm in the first 5mins of trolling lost a big one a little while later. Then it happened I pulled up what I thought to be a clump of weed which turned out to be the biggest flatty I've ever seen, then hell broke lose. 3 maybe 4 times I had it at the boat (I had no net) then the last time my line wrapped around its tail and it was gone. Easily a metre and one very sad but happy fisherman.
