Maxy was pretty happy with his 68cm  athead caught on a 38mm Zerek Bull- dog Crank.

Knowledge is the key
to give it a go, so we moved over to an area a few hundred metres away that usually holds a few lizards at this time of the year, and we started casting a few plastics around.
I corrected him and told him he’d hooked a decent fish.
aged to snag a couple of respectable models.
This fish hooked in only about 400mm of water, so I gave him a bit of stick on the light gear, but he soon had the fish under control and in the net.
Anyway, hopefully the fishing down this way will pick up over the next few months and become more constant.
It didn’t take long be- fore I was lucky enough to pick up a fish around 50cm on a Zerek Live Flash Minnow Wriggly and, after a few quick photos, the fish was re- leased too.
That doesn’t mean that there isn’t any fish down here.
It was a solid 68cm flatty, which was also released to fight anoth- er day after a couple of quick pics.
It’s just that they’ve been a bit tricky to catch at the moment and I much prefer it when we can get con- sistency in fishing ses- sions and catches, but it will pick up.
We put a few more casts in but we didn’t get any more fish, so I decided to tie on a cou- ple of crankbaits and see if we could tease a couple up.
A northerly breeze had pushed in and it was getting a little bit tricky to fish this area.

We had already had a nice day out on the water, so we decided to head home.

By targeting a few fish on the right side of the tide, even though it wasn’t early in the morning or late in the afternoon, we still man-
We made a few troll- ing passes for nothing and, though there was a bit of snot weed around which made it a little more difficult, on the third pass young Maxy told me he was snagged.
We got back to the pontoon and I was glad to have had such a great day with my young son.
