Back to the Georges for some flatties


Recommended Posts

Yowie's recent post prompted me to go and chase some predators instead of whiting so I launched in the Georges early this morning (prior to an appointment to have a skin cancer cut off my neck!). Took a while to catch some bigger poddies but started fishing as the run out was approaching its second hour. Fished a couple of deeper trophy fish spots but no applause so I tried another option in 2m of water and the first flatty came on board within 30 minutes.

Tried a few more normally productive spots with one bust off (blame my knot!) then headed to another spot downsteam where a good drop-off often produces fish. Landed another good fish on the first drift then picked up another almost identical fish with 20m of the last one. Had a good run from something with weight but the poddy was dropped after something had crushed and scaled it!)

Picked up one more good flatty and headed off for the slice and dice!

Filleted the fish after surgery and now have a good stash of skinless and boneless flatty fillets frozen ready for Christmas!
