*Rivers fishing well

*Crabs are on

Dad joke:

I bought coconut shampoo today, but when I got home I realised I don’t have a coconut


Hi everyone, the deep holes that can be found in the lower parts of the tweed river proved to be fishing the best again this week. 

I was going to try some holes further up the river but found that the water was still quite muddy after the recent flood, as well as another 200mm falling in upper catchment 2 days ago.

A nice little soapie jew caught on a zx40 vibe

Giant trevally as well as flatties and a few small jewies known as soapies were on offer in the deep holes. Drifting and deep water jigging with samiki vibes and Ecogear zx 40 lures worked the best for this technique with the darker colours producing the goods.

Busy week as usual for this time of year, and some very good fishing in the the river for flathead, mulloway, tarwhine, and mud crabs, while the sand banks in the broadwater produced some stonker whiting, school flathead, tarwhine, masses of bream, and sand crab.

The weather has been mixed but that hasn’t stopped us having a heap of fun on light tackle. Again yabbies have worked well, and Pontoon 21 crackjack and Samaki Vibelicious lures coated in Sax scent UV goldprawn.

A nice day on the beautiful broadwater

This week we’ll look for mangrove jacks, and during the day the bigger new moon tides should get the flats firing.

*This is just a prediction. There are many factors when it comes to fishing and fish are unpredictable at times, there are no exact guarantees. We include this just for fun and see how it plays out every week.
