Half tide rocks flathead

Recommended Posts

Went down to Ettalong/Ocean beach this morning for a fish. Arrived at 6am and back to the car at 9am. Result 4 flathead around the 40cm's and 1@53cm.

Not a bad start to the day

Good thing you went early it turned into Bondi about 10am

Haha it is a joke, I tried to help a bloke who clearly had no idea at Woy Woy the other day after waiting 20minutes whilst he was retrieving his boat and was clearly struggling to cop an earful of abuse and how dare I interrupt in reply

Nothing wrong with poor man's drifting especially when you get a bagful like that.

Do you just run the sinker down to the hook, have a swivel and short leader or just play around to see what is about.

Hmmmm flathead. .. Cheers R&B

Just a running sinker down to the hook. Always a bean sinker and as small as I can. When the current flows a bit harder just up the sinker size.

mate I go up there all the time as we have a place up at Ettalong yet I don't like going up there in holiday times too many people/R tards  we took our dogs to the off leash area and our dogs were sniffing around his dog as all dogs do he than started to throw sand on one of our dogs face and picked the other dog by the tail and next and tossed him about 4 metres and these dogs are labs. but he maintained that he was in the right. anyway going off the track I much rather going up every other weekend during the year rather than holiday time
