1 July 2021 fishing report & news


1 July 2021

*Good tailor at Tweed

*Squid and flathead at Gold Coast

*Lockdown and winter rain

Dad joke:

What do you call a line of men waiting to get haircuts?

A barberqueue.


G’day everyone obviously I have not been able to go on the water over the last few days, but we did have some good fishing earlier in the week before the lockdown. 

Tailor and plenty of them were once again attacking every lure we put in the water. These fish enter our rivers every winter but this year they are in plaque numbers which is fantastic. 

Big Morry with a nice flattie.

This is a direct result of the huge amount of rainfall we have had this season.  Speaking of rain I can here it hitting the roof now at the time of writing and going by the forecast it might stay with us for the next few days. 

Some nice quality flatties also committed to our lures earlier this week as did a heap of small bream. Well lets hope we can all get back on the water next week and enjoy the good tides coming up and finish the school holidays with some bends in the rods.

As Smithy mentioned, a week curtailed by a lockdown. Before that I had some good flathead and squid fishing earlier this week.

Good flathead fishing at Nerang river

I do hope we don’t get too much rain on the coast, the water is just getting to the ideal clarity in the river and broadwater. If it gets too dirty it’ll delay the good tailor and school mackerel fishing. Run out tides might need need flashy looking lures and squid jigs for the bites.

Yummy flathead
The boys from Melbourne did well on flathead with lures

A drop in temperature should stop the snot weed blooming though, which was starting to appear around crab island.

In any case I’ll be rearing to go early next chasing fun for my charter guests. New moon is Saturday week, so the lead up should be ideal for targeting big tiger and arrow squid, flathead, flounder, big bream, winter whiting, sand crabs, squire, mackerel and tailor.

Very tasty squid and crabs
Flathead love Hurricane Slam lures
