Drifting for Flathead is a good way to catch a feed, with a pilchard or strip bait bouncing along the bottom.
I find it also pays to cast ahead of the drift with soft plastics, vibes, or hard bodies., as you may just excite a bigger model.
This flathead was caught in 3 meters of water on a TT Jighead, and 100mm Plastic.
Not the normal ground you hear of big lizards getting caught, it went 72cm so about as big as you get to keep up in Queensland.
Mackerel, Black tip Reef Sharks, Tailor were also on the chew
Making short work of the baits and lures.
