Flathead St Kilda Pier

September 16th, 2017

Hi fellas! Just here to give you guys a report on these flatties i caught at St Kilda pier. I was fishing in the incoming tide using soft plastics with bright yellow color. I was fishing the right side of the pier as the wind was blowing quite strong from the left side of the pier. Then i started casting the lure, made it sink to the very bottom, pause for 5 seconds or so, hop hop, retrieve the slack line, and pause again. Did that for like 30 minutes until my first one at 8.30 pm when the tide was almost high. the bite was on the pause. The other one i did it differently: i cast it out, let it sink, the retrieve it very very slowly just to crawl on the sand. Then the flatty hit it again. I also did bait fishing with pillies and squid, caught nothing but this creature. i think it was eel. what do you guys thing? is this edible? or perhaps good for bait?

Cheers

I went to mordialloc. Some small salmon around but the wind was NNE and 20 knots. Not good for lures.

The eel looks like a worm-eel. I'm not sure how they go as bait but I have had a flathead spit up a small one once before so at least flathead will eat them
