    And now for something completely different ......

    ............. an actual fishing report

    Been a while since I put up a report. Not many up on here like there used to be.

    Let me know if you want more and I'll see what I can do.

    Lately up in my neck of the woods the flathead have really been firing up. I got out for a couple of hours on Sunday before I had to take the missus christmas present shopping. I was at the ramp right on daylight (4:15am) and launched with my two dogs as company. I headed to one of my fav spots and hit spotlock on the trusty iPilot and cast my favourite gulp 4inch curl tail grubinto a little drain. The tide had a couple of hours run out and there wasn't a breath pf wind. Perfect!!! Not long into my morning I connected to a nice mid fifties model. A quick happy snap and into the keeper net it went. This was followed by a regular stream of flathead until the tide turned and a gentle northerly rolled in. That was my cue to head off. I shot up the passage to the dogs favourite sandbar, chucked them over the gunnel and let them swim to shore. I then belted up and down the edge of the sandbar at full noise as the dogs chased me thinking they would be marooned on the sandbar. After I ran them ragged I headed back to the ramp to clean my fish around 8am as most people were launching

    Anyway. A top day on the water and a nice feed to boot

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Hi funchy, i find that after the start of October the flathead become much scarcer down Donnybrook way, I was on the water at 5.15 last sunday morning and never had a touch on plastics, pumped some yabbies and tried for summer whiting next to a big bank lined by weed, got stingrays , grunter bream and small bream, this makes 2 trips chasing whiting that has yielded nothing, are summer whiting that hard for others in the passage?.

    You need FFF, Funchy the Flathead ......, wait that's FFW, FF Whisperer to come down and find them for you. I was out the previous Saturday morning, back at the ramp by 7.30 am with 5 ranging 52 cm to 60 cm. Lost a horse of a fish but it was a case of 1 hookup, 1 keeper. I tried chasing Whiting a couple of days earlier but got zip, turned out they were in the very clear water in the passage at the nthrn tip of Bribie.
