I’m looking out the window at them now……….. and they’re off.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone, it’s been a windy week with a couple of settled weather days in the middle.

Trolling my favourite Pontoon 21 crackjack 48mm lures has produced some nice flathead on the run in tides over the shallow flats at Tweed river.

These amazing little lures will catch most species in estuaries including flathead, bream, whiting, trevally. 

This coming week’s lead up to full moon and dropping wind will see some great catches in the rivers.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Hi everyone! After some very windy days it was such a pleasure to see some beautiful weather on Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday we fished the deeper main channel in the broadwater just North of the seaway.

Despite the small tides and low almanac the fish were hungry on the run in tide, with plenty of flathead, whiting, tuskfish, slateys, squire, flounder, tarwhine, grassy emperor falling for Ecogear isome worms, Magbite shrimps, and Samaki vibes.

It’s quite amazing how well the Ecogear worms work in the broadwater. We sell them for $9.99 per pack including free postage. They smell like blueberries and don’t dry out like other similar products.

Romi also landed a nice slatey

Romi and his kids were happy to get vids and pics and release all the fish.

On Thursday I went whiting wading with Andrew and Richard. After a slow start we recovered well and found a good feeding patch on the run in tide. Richard did well to catch his best ever whiting, measuring 41.5cm.

This coming week as Smithy said is lead up to full moon which will fire up a range of species in the rivers, creeks, and broadwater.
