    Dragnet is probably the way forward but need minimum two players for that.

    use a long rope on one end anchored to the beach then row the other end out and around in a semi circle back to beach then just haul it in by hand problem solved

    I'll check the rules but I think you're not allowed to anchor a end or it is a "set net"

    It would be worth giving rod and line a go for flounder. They do it in a lot of other countries and the flounder have to eat something!

    Awesome!

    Odd how the bits of coast where you often see dolphins are the only places left that as from the 1st of next montht you can still use a net.
    All in the name of saving the dolphins ay......the science doesnt back them up at all....this must be contested.

    Yes I have already given that quite a few goes and chucked a fair few dollars at the tackle shop owners.......I got lots of hits but not hookups.
    Just using the smallest jig heads and soft baits I could find in the local shops ( designed for trout I think)
    The idea definitely has merit tho just need to get some smaller versions of those fly type things the Americans use for "fluke" fishing I recon and clear enough water for them to see them in.
    If Im not gonna catch enough to feed the neighborhood it needs to be fun to warrent the effort.

    Tide times are very gentlemanly Sat morning but I will be working.....id like one of my nets to be out there doing it....
    I dont care if you cut a ray out of it and fill it full of weed its going to have to be reslung and converted into a drag net anyway.
    IF you can start a outboard and know what end of a oar to hang onto its yours for Sat. @Pengy @stingray @mikee @deer243 @madjon_ @Kiwi Greg @Shearer @kukuwai and any other local member is welcome to take it out and have a crack and get a feed.

    I would but I am taking my we girl out for here first pheasant shoot (F&G hunt at Rabbit Island), I really need to shake off "Grumpy Mikee" I seem to have a sign that says "Go ahead fuck me over, rip me off" lately and I am not sure what a boat is supposed to do.

    Cool. In the US, they use soft baits or small bucktails bounced off the bottom. In the UK, it's bait fishing with marine worms. Either way, I think light, sensitive gear with small hooks is the way to go.

    Bucktails! Yea thats the word.
    Them but smaller would be the go I recon, I was trying the softbaits with 8p braid and 10p fluorocarbon which is plenty light to be dragging over cockels, Pacific Oysters,engine blocks, wheels etc I recon
    As I said I was getting hits but our flounder have very small mouths compared to their Fluke so smaller terminal tackle required I think.
