Flatties in the swan river at the moment?



i live around bicton and just bought a new spinning rod and am wanting to target bream and flathead on softplastics/metal vibes


i heard this time of year isnt great for flathead in the swan? anyone know if they are around still?


i usually go to bicton baths jetty unless anyone can suggest a better place near bicton


as i said im using soft plastics such as the 3" minnows and grubs


any tips would be appreciated as first time with soft plastics

 as Davy said, they do shut down in winter. Just have to work harder for them. I've found vibes to work better in winter, as, in my experience, they have gone deeper.
