    A week on the flat ones.

    just finished a weeks long service, the idea was to line it up with good weather and low tides in the passage in the morning, had a great week and all up landed 32 flathead the biggest going 60cm, also 2 bream the biggest going 37cm, i used 2 lures mostly, I was given a packet of pink 3 inch Zman minnows at xmas and the first one i used caught 30 fish before i retired it, these plastics are tremendous value, the other is a little vibe that is just so good, its the ecogear zx40, its great for water over 2 metres where you want to be near the bottom and not wait for ever for a plastic to sink and it casts like a bullet, to get the best effect just give little lifts off the bottom to vibrate then let sink and repeat , the only problem was the 2 little trailing hooks, first time i used it i missed so many hits but this was fixed by fitting a small suicide hook closer to rear, and where were the fish?, near the edges as usual and i find the passage never seems to hold the bigger flathead, ive been keeping a log of fish caught since mid April and last weeks effort made the total 143 flathead so far and the biggest has been 60 cm.

    Re: A week on the flat ones.

    Nice post. Glad you got to use your leave for such a great result.
    I've always been a bait fisho, last time I went out I tried a few plastics with no success but it is cold down here, is that a good enough excuse ?
