I managed to snag a couple of days of work with my daughter on school holidays. She chose to go fishing and target flathead, so who was I to argue?
We kicked off from Swallow rock around 8 headed down south in nice conditions to our flathead grounds.
The conditions were pretty good with the day warming nicely, plenty of whales still about a decent drift and the fish joining in, it really doesn't get much better. After a few nice hours on the water we had our feed and headed home.
I was surprised how warm the water was at around 19 degrees outside the hacking with a much more chilly 14 up river. The flatties ranged from 37-48 cm. One of the bigger ones had a fat belly with a recently consumed red spot whiting. Mostly blue spots with the one Tiger flathead.
