    Bream on hardbodies in middle harbour

    Don't forget drifting the sand flats casting ahead of the boat, Try a lighter leader, 6 or 4 lb, But be prepared to loose a few to flathead going to 4 lb.. . Sandflat fishing is my favourite with HB lures, Dawn to sunrise is my favourite time. on a rising tide. And Slow Down, A slow roll is my choice in retrieves. I also agree with TheFoosh and all his comets!. Find the food, yabby holes, bait fish , oysters, and there is a high chance the fish will be there! Have you watched Sand Flats Fishing on you tube ? Howard. PS. I mainly target Flathead, I use a 4 lb leader with what I call a bite trace, about 20 c/m of 10 or 12 lb between the 4 lb and the lure !! 4 lb gives you a longer cast!

    What herbs do you use with fish

    Not Herb related But Good. When camping and catching Bream or Trout, I would fill the gut cavity with tomato and onion, Wrap in Alfoil than on the fire. A great meal with potatoes in the coals also.

    I still have a few around, went out of favour as more "modern " lures came out. I still use 1/4 X 1/2 inch chrome lures and have people ask what they are. Howard.

    Ultra Light Bream Reel

    I have stradic fa, fb, fk and Daiwa Aegis on my 1 to 3 and 2 to 4 rods, the ci4+1000 fb is the lightest but the 2006 Aegis feels so good. But the tournament drag is a pain, so many turns to get some decent drag. And a max of only 2 kg. Stradic FK 195 grams, if it is too heavy then the fb at 160 gram is your best choice. Luvias 2004 is 175 grams ? Howard.

    Flathead on light leader

    I fish almost exclusively for Flathead on lures. I use 4 lb leader With about 30 c/m of 12 lb tied as a bite trace on the end. I use 4 or 6 lb leader to cast further. It probably reduces the bream by catch, but the Jew by catch is covered !!! I was fishing with the local Guide last week, and he uses 8 lb leader with no problems. We caught over 12 flathead that day without loosing any to bite offs. We were using 1 to 3 and 2 to 4 kg rods with a firm drag. Not too tight so the fish could run a bit ! Howard.
