10 April 2020 fishing report and news


10 April 2020

Dad joke:

What kind of music should you listen to while fishing?

Something catchy.


Firstly please follow the current government advice and rules for Covid 19. You are only allowed to go boating if fishing for food, and please stay local. You should not be leaving your own post code. Police will be checking and fines are large.

Brad reports the whiting, trevally and bream are still actively smashing lures at Tweed river. MMD surface lures in honey bee colour and trolling or casting Pontoon 21 crackjacks hardbodies are both deadly. 

Top quality tackle you can buy directly from our online shop

Clint has been solo fishing at the Gold Coast broadwater for a family feed, catching whiting, bream and flathead for a family feed on surface lures and unweighted yabbies while wading sand banks which is awesome and relaxing fun. We’ll be writing full tips about this technique very soon!
