    i reckon thats the case, plastics indeed do work, they work just about in every creek, river, lake, stream and dam, ocean and sea that holds fish life.. i think they are just scared because there bait supplys will go down because people would rather throw a plastic

    maybe a water clarity thing in the rivers come summer???

    but we had success using aluminium foil & webbing from a backpack on Hinchinbrook, so North Qld fish are certainly dumb enough for plastics

    I have used plastics in the inlet and Barron and have nailed almost all the regular creek species, bream jacks grunter etc. No barra yet on soft plastic although i have had a few strikes. Maybe next season Like you though I was told not to bother with them.

    Am useing plastics up here in Darwin (bream sized on bream gear) and have caught nearly every eastry speices on them, even fish that I have never caught on lure before eg sand bass ,blackall, best fish landed to date is a 75cm barra on a 1.5 inch slider. Have found that it takes a bit of playing around to work out the best tides and time of year to use them efectively, sofar the dry is the best time or the first tide after dead neap while the water is still clean at this time of the year. Your 3 inch and up plastics can be usd all tear round and will catch everthing you catch on hard bodies, so bite the bullet buy a couple of packets and give them a go.
    cheers Ian
