Patonga Creek 6/12/2005


Recommended Posts

Fished Patonga Creek in my tinny with a mate on Tuesday. Conditions were perfect.

It was fairly quiet mid-afternoon at the top of the tide.

But when it started to fall, I managed a flattie of about 2kg casting close-in to the mangroves, over nipper beds in less than half a metre of water. Unfortunately, didn't think to measure the old lady in my haste to return her to the water.

The fish took the smallest-size, red crawdad, fished on my light bream spinning combo. It made some line sizzling runs before I could bring her to the boat -- and some people believe flathead can't fight!

Later, my mate picked-up a 1kg flattie further down the creek on a soft plastic jig. This one went in to the fish box.

At dusk, down near the Patonga village, I managed a small flattie of about 30 cm which I returned to the water.

Not a huge number of fish, but a very enjoyable outing all the same.
