Hook, Line & Sinker with Lindsay

Worrall Creek flathead

Its good to go off and try the fish somewhere else instead of your own neck of the woods. A trip to Scotts Head to visit friends was a great chance for me to fish some of the old spots I once frequented some 40 years ago. The weather put an end to plans to fish the bream on what is known as the new cut, with rain and wind discounting any chance for some night time breaming, so something else had to be tried.

Whether it was a coincidence that the flathead were there chasing some bait fish or it is a regular haunt for them is not known, but an outing to Worrall Creek produced some flathead that responded well to plastics. The fish caught were up to 2kgs and not one was under size. On this occasion they responded to a white Atomic brand as they were feeding on white bait. In all 14 very good fish were caught.

The only reason fishing was possible at this spot was because it is only a small estuary and sheltered from the heavy winds that the long weekend brought to the North Coast.

Remember the Bass Classic being held on the Northern Rivers in October.

Also dont forget there is $3000 in prizes up for grabs during the Evans Head Classic in July.

Happy fishing and better weather next weekend.
