Jewies are a real fan of inclement weather and bite well once you have found the deep holes that have an abundance of bait in them, and you focus your fishing around the tide changes. 

Trolling and casting lures over the shallow flats on the run in tides is where the best numbers of flathead can be found. 

Through the winter months the flatties will often move up out of deep water to feed in the shallower sun heated flats areas. 

There are a few big bream starting to appear but the size and numbers of this fish will increase during the months to come.
