1 June 2018 fishing report

This week’s tip:

We mentioned last week that big bream will start to enter our rivers over the next few months.
Nice quality tailor will also enter the rivers at the same time so keep an eye out for any bird or surface activity as this is a major sign of where to find these lure crunching fish.

Trolling minnow lures and casting small metal spinners is the way to approach these hard fighting critters early morning. Use the cheaper lures to troll as they are not too fussy when feeding, and will chop off expensive lures too often.

Fishing report:

This week’s fishing continued at the Gold Coast broadwater with still a few nice whiting around the 30cm mark feeding near the yabby banks. On Sunday I stayed out till after sunset with Mark and his son Joachim from Victoria. The whiting were hungry and Joachim had a ball pulling in a mix of winter and sand whiting for dinner.

Earlier in the day local Dad Michael and kids James and Lexi came fishing, we started at Crab Island, caught some whiting and a solid Tuskfish. Hilarious how hard it fought on the little kids rod they brought with. It then got windy so we retreated to a yabby bank, pumped some yabbies, and caught more whiting, tarwine, and bream, so they had fish for tea as well.

This week we look forward to chasing flathead and tailor when the wind drops, the winter squid are increasing in number, and soon the big sea bream will make an appearance in the river mouths to spawn.
At the Tweed river Mulloway and flathead continue to dominate the daily catch on Hurricane blades fished in the deeper holes.
