OVER the past month Ive been experimenting with ultra small soft plastics, and by ultra small I mean tiny, with some of the fake offerings barely two inches long. And to be perfectly honest, the results have been astounding, with all sorts of northern speedsters taking a liking to the length-challenged plastics. As Ive mentioned in earlier missives, you need to throw these micro plastics off the fairy string, with 2-4kg spin sticks the ultimate weapon of choice. This is where the fun factor red-lines a decent fish of any species will give you one of those heart-stopping tussles that often leaves you with sweaty palms and heart palpitations. What amazes me is the way these little plastics get clobbered in such a convincing manner wham, bam, thank you mam. Queenfish, golden trevally and goldies are suckers for the undersized counterfeit fish, along with all sorts of other species. We all know there are some handy flathead in the coastal waters of the Top End, but they are more often than not a by catch rather than a targeted species. The little plastics have changed all that with flatties to 42cm now a regular fixture on the measuring board. Its a pretty neat system you can employ in all sorts of situations, be it working the flats, targeting the mouths of the drains on a dropping tide or bouncing your softies on the rock bars. But be warned when the bigger models show interest the whole show can be over in the blink of an eye, particularly if you encounter a school of big golden trevally or a big cruising queenfish. As the weather and water warm up the barra will come back into the crosshairs, and those cruising fish on the flats have no hesitation in scoffing down small prawn imitations. Ive already mentioned the Zerek live prawn and there is another on eBay called the Vudu Prawn, which will set you back about $10. But the good news is there are two to a pack, so at five bucks a throw its affordable fishing for all. Next week Ill bring you some photos of both the Zerek and the Vudu. They really are about as close to a real prawn as you can get and the good news is they catch fish. Just jump online and check out some of the plastics on the US websites, and start looking for little wriggly bits that might just be worth a throw in your part of the world.
