92cm flathead from the pine river and a slightly smaller one


Seems to be quite easy to catch flathead in the Pine River, weve had some really good sessions of up to 50 fish between 3 of us in a few hours when they are on


We always seem to get a good feed when using Soft plastics to chase flathead

A Wobbegong shark on a live Pike, those soft plastics can catch anything, and we get some nice mudcrabs around here too.

Kaimen with his best bass (for all of us) so far at 54cm, and a couple more from North Pine Dam/Lake Samsonvale.
We catch quite a few Redclaw Crayfish when we fish North Pine Dam so we decided to make a how to video.
