    awesome catch trout fisher,i have wanted to catch a flounder on softies for ages but have only tried once or twice and had no luck,have been to lazy to persivere,i tried 3 and 4 inch grub tails and the lift drop retreive technique,what softbaits and techniques have been working for you mate,you obviously have it down.

    Thanks Shark slayer. I use 3 inch gulp minnows on 1/6oz Jigheads and reel them in really slowly dragging the Softbait across the bottom,every time I feel a bump I lift the rod and if its a flounder it normally grabs the Softbait just as you lift the rod. Unlike when using Lures with the Softbaits the flounder are actually hooked in the mouth both yesterdays fish had completely swallowed the softbait right down.

    Nah. I Haven’t seen the sea but its probably a bit discolored close in with the Norwester and the Kahawai only seem to like really clean water.
