Flatties around Point Walter?

gday. im thinking of taking the boat out to the flats around point walter chasing flathead. just wondering what lures and what baits have worked well in recent times. i have only fished the area once and caught a couple of flatties 35-40cm on a silver laser 25 metal slice.

soft plastics work well but the blowies destroy them, any small lure will do the job. Ive had a fair bit of luck on halcos, just work the drop offs.

Soft Plastics.... Caught 3 last night in about 30mins... Biggest was 45cm on a 4" Snapback Jerkbait . Also got a few big ones last weekend using a small white marabou jig... Found the snapbacks work best as the blowies cant tear them up as fast.
