THIS WEEK’S GOLD COAST AND TWEED ESTUARY FISHING REPORT AND NEWS

11 November 2022

Dad joke:

My friend said, “My kid refuses to eat fish. What do you think is a good replacement?”

Me: Cats. Cats love fish.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone as I had hoped from last week’s report the big tides this week produced some outstanding fishing. The changes and differences between the high and low tides make a huge difference and this week they were extreme and made the critters feed like crazy.

My business partner Clint and I were having a joke about it as he has had a thumper week on the Broadwater and were wondering about this week’s  blood moon and the outstanding fishing. The species caught this week were huge a number of flatties and juvenile school jew and were supplemented by whiting, bream and my biggest mangrove jack of the season.

We caught and released over 20 beautiful little school jew like this one caught by Kym this week

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

We had some good flathead fishing leading up to the full moon, some days we caught 20 plus fish with some good size ones. The water temperature is still stuck on 22 degrees or so, which flathead love.

The cool water on the flats seemed to have pushed the big whiting deeper, but with air temperatures rising this coming week with Northerly winds we should see the schools of tings back and mangrove jacks firing up more.

There has been plenty of small bait fish around, which means that using small lures gets you a heap of action. My favourites lately have been the Zman ST Grubz and Zman Prawnz. Both these new releases are 2.5 inch length, perfect for finesse presentation. They catch a stack of species for me including big flathead, bream, trevally, sand whiting, tarwhine, tailor. I like to rig them on TT Demonz 1/4 oz 2/0 H when fishing the flats. 

Bream were striking hard on Zman prawnz

You can go lighter when the wind is light for more finesse. My favourite colour is definitely Houdini but midnight oil, blood oil, and beer run also work great. All I do is cast them out, let them sink to the bottom, then single little hops and pauses.

Another healthy sand whiting

Ecogear ZX40’s in 440 colour are also working great, as are Samaki Vibelicious forktail 70mm in whitebait colour. Best fishing areas have been Sovereign island, Crab island, Curlew island, and Southport.

Zman Prawnz Beer Run colour

This coming week we should see come big sand whiting on the flats, and more flathead also shallow. I like the tides coming up. Not too big not too small, just right! Let’s hope the wind chills out, we’ve seen enough lately. If you’re travelling through the broadwater please keep an eye out for resident wildlife. I’ve seen jetboats, jetskis, superyachts nearly run over dolphins at full speed, oblivious. There are also turtles and dugongs around.

Flathead on the chew!
