With the less than average weather conditions and not being able to get out wide much, Pete and I have been having some epic sessions in the past few weeks with the Flatties and other river monsters, racking up massive numbers including a session of 50+ fish in a few hours.
A Weapon of a rod, the OBS67M has accounted for most of them. Amazing rod for fishing small vibes and plastics. Super sensitive and ridiculously ergonomic in the hands, this thing goes gangbusters. With its awesome backbone, we have felt confident even when encountering the odd Mundi or Queenie, an awesome light tackle all rounder. Great for the salt and fresh alike. One of our favorite rods for chasing sooties in the impoundments.
The lures of choice for the Flatties has been the Sebile Flatt Shad 54 in Gold and BRA. Fished it slow rolling and long twitches near the bottom.
