Biggest flatty

Postby Master-pro » Tue Nov 19, 2013 7:36 pm

Whats the biggest flatty you have seen caught from ppb or wp? my mate says he dropped to flathead at the boat which were close to if not over a metre... hes says he dropped them because he had no net. thoughts of flathead like this in our bays?
PB- Snapper 55cm, Whiting 38cm, Flathead 55cm, Bream 38cm, Australian Salmon 55cm, Carp 80cm

I'd believe it . I got a 85 cm off sorrento a couple of years ago took a photo and let her go to fight another day . Not to many that size getn round anymore . Apparently they where prolific around that size in the 80s

Around 55cm is the biggest iv ever got in ppb, I wonder why with the thousands of boats fishing ppb and Wp every weekend that someone has not landed one at a metre.............and taken a photo..........

Water distorts size. No way you get a metery in PPB. Would need to be a Dusky and it would be a fair way from home..
My best is a 61 from the Beach at Venus Bay. Looked a metre long when i brought it in too :)
