Estuary Cod and Flathead on Soft Plastics - Video

#1 Post by rocketV » Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:40 pm

In my job we don't get to take off local public holidays, but we do get a day in lieu to take at a later time.
I chose last Friday and was lucky enough to score some decent weather and a bit of time on the water to enjoy it.
The fishing wasn't frantic, but I scored some good fish for my efforts.
Please check out my video for the highlights.



Fresh is best, but I don't mind some salt every now and then!

Nice flattie, looks to be a nice calm stretch of water. That soft plastic certainly is a different colour.

Thanks Stew.
I have never used a plastic of that color before, and probably would not have picked it if I was buying, but as I won it in a raffle I thought I'd give it a go.
It did a good job for me :grin:

No, did not think about it at the time! Should just take a pic of everything on the measure to be sure :grin:
