    Wind was up more than forecast but no swell so all good .... nice steady fishing with a couple of JDs on the bottom liveys, saw a couple of horse sized kingis cruising but weren’t interested in maccys ( My kingdom for a Kahawai......) pulled pin when ran out of mullet ... only took 4, was home and filleting in the daylight made easier by dropping off a couple of snapper on way home, rum poured boat clean ready for JD fillets for dinner Name:  9C4208BA-9A5F-4482-8ED9-143E7850F6D4.jpeg

    Yep in the Firth .... Rig is nothing special ....Surtees 575 workmate with a few extras and the JD rig is Sinker at the bottom up to a 3 way swivel and I use a good size circle hook on about a 1.5m trace out from the 3 way swivel. Use enough gun rod wise as big snaps and kingis eat em too.

    So plan is …fish the last hour of out going …perhaps first hour of in coming ..then drag the buggers


    Then I had a thought , summer day clear water ..sight fishing just like trout, a shallow flat we have dropping to a deep pool crab central …drop a bait into the holding water and tease one out!..fun times ahead

    Though you would be using bait for the flatties?
    I have used peas and corn before and caught a couple on the corn. Caught a Stargazer too. I once made up a flattie longline with 80lb mainline and crimped off light traces baited with corn. I didn't have any joy with it but then I only set it once.
