yeh sorry about that i was just going by a few of the other post,

doesn't bother men anyway as i never go chaseing record i just love catching and chaseing them

flathead did give a pretty good account for it's self and the only shame was they on only packed the 1kg stick away a few casts before hand :mad3:

ohwell i'm sure i will get another one onedat like that on the 1kg gear and sure it will be one of the best buzzes i will have

Nice fish,

I fish with soft plastics regularly down in Lake Macq. If you love catching big flathead head on down, though after the last Flathead classic up at the Gold Coast...theres some damn good fish up in those water ways. Though I haven't fished it in years the river upstream of the Macksville bridge also holds some surprisingly good lizards

thanks to all

i have only fished the nambucca river one and while it didn't fire for me still looked the good and i must get back up there this summer

i'm sure lucky to live in the area i do as it isn't uncommon for flathead this size to be taken

i love catching both bream and bass on plastics but these big flathead sure come close
