What bait is best for flathead?

Live Bait – Live prawns, mullet, herring, hardyheads, and whitebait are some of the greatest baits you can use for flathead.

What lure should I use for flathead?

The number one flathead plastic for me would have to be the ZMan 3″ MinnowZ, the perfect baitfish. It also appeals to so many other species, hence the massive colour range, leading to plenty of quality by-catch, such as trevally, mulloway, mangrove jack, barramundi, snapper and more.

What is the best time to catch flathead?

The best time to get yourself a nice Flathead is during the day, two – three days lead up to the full moon and the following two- three days after.
