Post Posted: Thu Feb 08, 2018 6:57 pm    Post subject: Good Flathead Initiative in NSW

A recent initiative at Lake Macquarie. Further strengthening the education will only assist this impressive fishery; back from the brink post the nets circa 16 years ago.

If it's not already I believe it will become the best flathead fishery in Australia. This initiative recognises current status and potential.

:clap: well done DPI!

That's smart.

They need to gene splice 'em down here to make them big.

I would have thought that there was enough same family gene slicing in Tasmania already

It's also needed in the Hastings River. When I was young I used to snorkel over a particular weed bed in the river and often saw 1m+ flathad. I often wonder if they still frequent this same spot

Shoot me the co-ords Lats and I'll let you know...

I've seen 3 around the 120 mark, all from the lake and heard whispers of several in excess of 130. Croc status.

Pulled a few out of there in my youth ( sooooo long ago ) . I can remember a 42 inch caught on a cork line and stinking prawns .

Great idea from the DPI , it would be great to see that fishery spring back to its glory days when flatty's up around the old yard mark weren't too uncommon .

Thanks for the post NBN , brought back a few fond memories . :fishing:

Swansea Channel and Pullbah island was always a productive spot for big dusky lizards, good to see times and people's attitudes have changed towards releasing big fish for the future, I know in the past i have kept big fish that would be released without question today!

Nice fish Jeff (42inch), they are a serious adversary at that size. The head shake alone will pop your loop knot.

Yes Trent, have seen some large critters at Pullbah, including a Great White.
