Christmas Flathead


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I'm a bit late getting this photo up. Caught this it on Christmas day. Yes, it went back in the drink. We didn't even take it out of the net, so I can't say exactly how big it was. But it was up there! (it's not me holding the net, a mate did the net work!)

We've had a 95cm + before and I think this one may have eclipsed that, but I'm not a great measurer or weigher of fish, I just catch them and let most go.

Bait was whole pilchard, run-in tide, sometime in later afternoon, raining & my senses honed courtesy of Christmas beers.

I'd like to get my hands on some good fresh Hawkesbury squid, but it hard to come by these days.

all the best

well over the meter mark. Was up on the tweed at Xmas and was fishing just under a bridge in about a meter of water with no luck. Went on top of the bridge to see one about the same size right were my lure was being cast. It was huge and i would have guessed 1.1-1.2m. Threw the lure about 5m in front but spooked her when it got closer. Wish i had the luck you did but just to see her was amazing!! What a crater she left behind and the head was well bigger than a shovel
