Not wishing to start the closed season argument again but I was wondering what you guys are fishing for "other" than Bass.

Im currently targeting Flathead for my 3rd winter season and there are some great fish around this year.

New PB 770 taken yesterday on a soft plastic.

Like my Bass fishing I CR everything and this girl swam off quite happy.

Nice fish Ziggy. I will be targeting bream , flatties and trevally. The last couple of seasons the trevally fishing through winter has been very consistant in the canals and estuaries so worth targeting. I started getting back into breamin' a couple of months back using hard bodies and have caught a few using the Pontoon 21 Crackjack 55's which should be a good bass lure too. I'm keen to catch a jewie too, especially on fly so plenty of things to keep you busy. Cheers Pat

Nice fish Ziggy
My main target will be snapper offshore from the yak.
Bit of a drama at home with that one though the wife is
more concerned about sharks than i am.Might have to think
about buying a sharkshield. Other than that will be chasing
big Winter whiting in the Georges River.
Goodluck chasing more PB'S

Nice Flatty Ziggy,also nice Blackfish Dishley,they are a bit slow in the Clarence so far this year.
I've been fairly smackin the Bream and Jew with a few Trevs and Tailor but what ever will chew on a lure is a target for me this winter,hope to get out and get into the Snapper and Pearly's on placco's.

Cheers

Hey Pat, Had a couple of Trevally this year and they kick some serious ass.

nepean, your freaking nuts!

Dishley, I had my fist Black this year, oddly on a lure and I thought they only nomed on weed.

Scott`s I like Tailor after catching a few this season. Never had a snapper.

Lee, Tuna! now theres a fish id like to play with.
Let me know how you go on the dams.

They hit the occasional lure. I've seen them pulled up on hardbodies, plastics and blades. Definitely not a common way to catch them though as they are generally herbivores. But like most fish if something tasty is in front of them they'll have a go at it, particularly in the warmer months when the weed can be harder to find.

Now that my boat is back in the water, I'm thinking of doing the Nepean a favour and chasing Carp.

Never fished for them before though. I have heard corn is a typical bait.

Can anyone shed some light on what works... baits... rigs etc?

I'd like to get my daughters out with me to catch a few over the cooler months.

One last thing... once dispatched and back at the ramp, where do you dump them?
Obviously not back in the river, where though?

Bream and Jewfish are this winters target species....so far biggest bream-39cm & Jewie-64cm. Maybe a spot of carp at the local whilst sunning myself.

Me and my boys just used white bread under a float in a mates dam to catch Carp. Worked very well. Have heard that canned corn is pretty effective too, take both and see what works on the day.

Not sure about disposal.
