I don't think you are doing it right Salts.

Bring your gear down this way and I'll show you how to catch a flathead.
Will take you up on that when I get back
I did get a good 1kg 53cmflatty last Sunday

I was just about to paddle out.....2 guys out.

Then saw the shark boat pull up to the drumline. Just out the back.


NSWDPI advise 2.52m Female White Shark caught on SMART drumlines at Boulders Beach, Ballina. Shark tagged and released offshore.
