    Soft plastics have always worked well for me in salt water lagoons.But i used a lot of trout lures aswell.Yabby patterns have always worked well too.Like the rebel crawdads.Colours that have worked for me are,the green nipper colour,pink like a dogs lipstick,Natural browns.I have caught plenty of flathead on these lures.

    Hi Guys,

    Both these lagoons are good spots that the locals keep quiet as these are noramlly land locked and can get belted by tourists very easily, Terrigal is quite healthy and the fish taste great from there and the fish you can catch in there are very suprising (check my profile pic)!
    Avoca is a bit stinky and I saw my dog poop in there once so I don't fish it, rocker on the other hand gets good sized Bream in there when hes goes for a row.

    Funny Terrigal logoon is what we commonly called the "poo pit" back when we used to go windsurfing there when I was very young.
    I wouldnt eat anything from there though, sorry, lol
    Terrigal holds good nuber of mullet that can be caught in traps and they make awesome bait and there are Whitign in numbes there aswell.

    I seen a few guys fishing Avoca eith placcies and they got a heap of big Bully Mullet there and a few nice sized Bream.

    Good luck with fishing that area I would only do so to gather live bait.

    Cheers
    Anthony

    OH! forgot to let you know what lures.

    most small soft plastics and vibes work really well on the Flathead, but where the ground is a bit rocky like near the bridges floating shallow or deep diving crank baits seem to work best, I use Berkeley Frenzy 60mm minnows and Kokodas Wee-whop shallow most of the time, they're cheap and effictive.

    Terrigal gets let out a lot more often now the pungent smell is gone - Wamby and Avoca though I wouldn't wade through.

    You will be suprised - hooking Flatties in ankle deep water is fun.
