Alva Beach Flathead

Dad and I made a trip to Alva Beach today. With an early morning high tide we hoped to find some big Flathead on the chew. However, it turned out to be a quiet morning. Initially all we could catch were these small silver fish. I'm not sure what they are, I called them a salmon, but I don't think they are? Anyone know?

But as the tide turned and started to run out the Flathead came on the bite. Well, we got a few anyway. Not really what I would call a hot bite. Dad caught a very nice one that went 56cm, and we got another 2 just over the magic 40cm mark. Numerous smaller fish were released.
