Katrina was keen to get a few more flatie tails after last weeks session with Brett so we hit the Hervey Bay flats again …..

Treen opened her account with a little mackerel that wasn’t quick enough to bite her off !

Treen stuck with our go-to lure – 100mm Squidgy Fish in black & gold on 2/0 9 gram head

The quality has been fantastic with most fish averaging 50+cm

She actually landed 4 beautiful fish over 70cm which where released …… These bigger fish really put on quite a show in the shallow water with quite a few eating the lure with-in sight of the boat !

Had to empty the well twice through out the day again – can you spot the snoger whiting

I stuck with the ever faithful 100mm Squidgy wriggler in bloodworm & was rewarded with half a dozen thumping whiting between 30cm – 40cm !

It was a great day with plenty of fish & ended up with a feed of tasty tails & whiting – How Good Is Hervey Bay
