11 June 2021

*Flathead in the shallows at Tweed river

*Squid getting bigger at broadwater

*Lovely weather this week ahead

*Snapper classic on this weekend

Dad joke:

My wife just found out I replaced her water bed with a trampoline.

She hit the roof.


G’day everyone once again it was a bumper week on the flatties with some bream and the odd juvenile jewie making up the rest of the catch.

Sue caught a couple of good flatties on pontoon 21 crackjacks.

Early in the week we mainly jigged the deep holes but for the last three days we turned our attention to fishing the very shallow areas of the river. The reason for the change in tactics was due to the very cold weather that came in Wednesday morning that crashed the water temperature to 16 degrees. 

Tweed river water temp dropped to 15 degrees

When this happens I fish the shallower water as the sun warms the water up quicker and this is where the flatties were in good numbers. Trolling and casting Pontoon 21 crackjacks provided the best results over the shallows.

A fishing week shortened by a blustery cold front signalling winter is in full swing.

The arrow squid are getting bigger, with some nice tiger squid around too. The green/gold and white/ silver Ecogear Dartmax jigs are working best, and the RUI jigs in natural green, and white colours.

Get out there and get a feed of squid, they are delicious! I cooked some on the bbq grill the other day. Two minutes each side, amazing. Best areas this week were Southport, Wavebreak island, and Runaway Bay.

Squid fishing this week:

There is also tuskfish, flathead, flounder, winter whiting, bream, tailor, on the bite in the broadwater. There are some big snapper and jewies feeding in the seaway at the moment.

The weather for the week ahead looks awesome and typical for June, we have neap tides which will allow us to fish the deeper channels and near the seaway for the squid and a variety of fish.
