Meadowbank morning


Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders,

Long session this morning. Up before five and on the water slightly before.

Started by fishing with my bigger outfit in search of a jewie. Persisted for about 40 mins for not much action, but noticed a bit of bait around that might inform my lure selection for later sessions.

When the sun came up I went back to the car and switched outfits, going in pursuit of a flatty or a bream. In a recent session, I had a big hit on the drop, that unfortunately came just as my bail was tripping and I didn't connect. About 10 mins in, the same thing happened, except this time I was ready. The culprit: a 44cm flatty:


Lure was a squidgy prawn 65mm in bloodworm, rigged on a 1/16th jighead. I was surprised how high in the water column the flatty came up, but I guess the water in the area is shallow.

A guy arrived in the bay to fish for whiting with live worms. First cast he gets a small one. I've never caught a sizeable whiting in this bay, but he told me that he gets 35cm models of an evening. I noted that he cast a lot further than I would normally reach with lures. Interesting. You learn something new every day. I already have a plan in my head to reach them (dropshot), will let you know if it works.

20 or so mins, got another little flatty, much smaller this time:


Moved around to the wharf area later on. Had good hit/visual on an approximately legal bream, but missed it. Would have been nice to get a bream...haven't got one for a while on lures.

After that, it was time to pack up and head home. Good fun.

Hope your new plan comes off littleflatty. We can often learn from something different going on nearby, a chance acquaintance or event. I'm going to keep an eye out for your next post to see what you have come up with. 

Good luck, bn
