I keep mentioning burley (chum) and attractants – and I’m going to mention them here again. In the following sections, I’ll explain in more details. But suffice to say for the moment – I always use a burley pot when beach fishing for flathead. I also always use attractants.
There are two main ways of flathead beach fishing. In both instances, after the turning of high tide is generally ideal as the water is slightly deeper at this time. Fishing the gutters as the water starts to run out.
