Wlliiamstown Arvo Flick

Postby munroe » Sun Oct 28, 2018 8:28 pm

On the start of a week off , thought I'd walk the piers with the high tide and seeking a little shelter from the wind.
9.5cm Paddletails rigged to a 1/8oz 2/0 Jighead.
It's great to see yanks this size in such shallow water.With warmer weather coming up, it's only going to get busier :thumbsup:

How did you go with weed? I had stopped going down to those piers because of the large amount of new weed that popped up a little while ago. Nice work on scoring a couple of flatties though!.

Weed is not too bad. my last session there a while back , there was heaps. Looks like it'll die off and turn into the matted layers that the flatties love to lay on to ambush ;-)

Couldn't sleep so went on down there at midnight with enthusiasm after your report. Weed is annoying at Ferguson however Gem was ok. Managed a 52cm Flattie. Good to see they are around again.

Perfect Monroe,
1/8 jighead on a 2/0 hook, maybe a 3/0, depending on the wind. Bit heavier.
Nice one, good to hear you did ok, no use whinging if the bay is windy, just go fishing at the fishing piers.

Finding a happy medium in weights. Shallow water with plenty of that wonderful fine green weed.
2/0 jigheads are fine for the bay. I save the 3/0 to 5/0 heavy duty jigheads for the duskies when I fish the S.E. Coast ;-)
