Plastics Taking Flathead
  |  First Published: December 2005

The weather is warming up and so is the fishing! It’s time to get out there and wet a line wet over the festive season.

The Post Office jetty has seen many trevally caught over the last month. There have also been some good bream under the main bridge.

A few flathead have been taking local prawns and pipis.

Bill Fry from Sportsco at Lakes and his brother-in-law caught some good flatties under the Highway Bridge on soft plastics. For those keen on the artificials, try walking around the sandflats in the same area.

December should see the return of luderick and King George whiting to the rocks around the Kalimna rockwall.

Lake Tyers is still the pick of the spots to fish with many reports of flathead, bream and pinkies from the bottom end of the system.

Les McDiarmid of Lake Tyers has been catching a few nice pinkies.

In November, Vaughan Nitschke caught flathead, small snapper and bream around Long Point on soft plastics. Early morning is the most productive time.

Outside, the fishing during October and early November saw many small pinkies hit the decks out on the Six and Ten Mile reefs.

December and January should see the big reds turn up when the water warms up. There’ll be more flathead about along with a few gummies in closer to the beach.
