Port Hacking PB flathead


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Haven't had a lot of luck over the past few months, I'm blaming the rain but it's probably more the fact that I'm just an average fisho haha. 

A few whiting and flathead but nothing really to report so haven't bothered.

Today I put the boat in at 5.30am and fished around Lilli Pilli. 

I had one rod fishing the bottom and an unweighted rod which was drifting down the berley trail. 

Caught a few tailor, biggest going 56cm which was a nice fish.

After 3 hours or so fishing my unweighted rod took off, big head shakes and taking line. I thought I was onto a nice jewie. As the fish was coming up to the boat, I saw what looked like a woebegone shark (I have caught them previously in that same spot) I was slightly disappointed but then as it got closer again, I realised it was a monster flathead. Panic started but luckily I was fishing with my dad and he managed to net it for me.

She came in at 79cm and seriously, the photo's don't do her justice. She was a stonker, could not believe how thick she was. 

Quick photo and sent on her way to make some more babies. 

Anyway, what was a fairly average day turned into a great day with a PB. 

All fish caught on salted yakka fillets.

Thanks for reading.
