Couple of nice swan flatheads.

Got these two on gulp soft plastics fishing with hsiehlung. the big one tipped the scales at just under a kilo around 37 or 38ish so nice solid fish. mouth ripped pretty bad on the way up sadly. been heaps of them around mossie park claremont area but mostly around 30cm mark.

hey bud u can keep trying

hey bud u can keep trying the pumpkin but always good to have a wide variety. whereabouts have u been fishing? sometimes if u buy the saltwater gulps which look like sandworms or redworms they work a treat for flatties. snell a couple of hooks one in the head and one in the tail usually works.

yep yep ive never tried around the guildford area but if u wanna head down to like the applecross jetty and fish in the shallows around the light there are usually a few nice ones down there :) biggest one i got down there was about 48 which is not overly massive but good fun on light gear :) pm me if u wanna head out sometime and give it a bash.
