Looks like Bruce Brown from Grange Primary; welcome to Eyre Peninsula. Try small poppers on the flats for the whiting.

Great work mate. I have seen some of my mates doing catch,tag and release on flatties, bream etc. around Redcliffe with great success on clousers.
Great photos.

i have seen some flatties here probably close to a metre n have been busted up by some big ones .People here dont seem to specifically target them except for me n finding some good areas to find them so just keep trying
