    Default Dids tries to teach Funchy a few things about flathead

    After a 3am meeting on Activeangler, Funchy and I thought it was time I shared some of my vast knowledge on the subject of flathead. So I jumped in the Pajero with fantastic plastic in tow and met my student at the ramp at .... well Funchy's spot X. 5am start saw a beautiful morning in the making, tide was 3/4 in and on the make.

    First spot we were joined by a couple of other boats with the same idea, and after 1/2 an hour of no hits we decided to move to Funchy's number one location as it was time with the sun just starting to show. Wasn't long and Funchy was pulling a few undersize flathead fry from the weed beds, then I stunned "The Flathead King" with the first keeper sliding into the net, Yes Dids was in front One - Nil. The King was clearly impressed and fired questions, for the next few hours about plastic selection, retrieves, line leader material etc ect...... I did my best to answer everything with my usual generous nature and Funchy lapped it up. Wasn't long and I guided Funchy onto a very nice 76cm flat one. It's great to see a kid succeed after a little persistence and a helping hand. In the end I just sat back and watched. I think Funchy got 4 keepers in the end as well as the big girl, who was released. Well done Mate. I enjoyed the day very much.
    Anything you want to add?

    Mmmm, Funchy might have a slightly different recollection of the day, but my post is accurate.... I think.

    Yes!!!! tide was 3/4 in and on the make. Hmmmmmm. Normal. Tide 3/4 in and ebbing, I'd call it a "Tsunami"


    Good work men. Dids is a great mentor when it comes to all things fishing. You are a very lucky man Funchy to have such a great teacher at your beck and call, even at 3am. You will be a much better flathead fisherman for the experience. -
