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

13 August 2022

Dad joke:

I started a dating website for chickens.

It’s not my regular day job… I just do it to help make hens meet.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone as I had hoped from last weeks report a few very big tailor did move into the river. They were not in big schools but put up a great fight on light tackle. 

My nephew Spencer with one of the seriously big tailor we caught on the day

Keeping a close look out for any bird activity is the best way to find where these fish are roaming. Apart from the tailor good quality and good numbers of flatties continue to dominate the catch with some reasonable bream also smashing the lures.

The little jewies that have been lurking around the deep holes in the river were also around with the odd nice one mixed in for good measure.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

It was a good week for arrow squid in the broadwater, we caught them on Ecogear Dartmax 3.0 squid jigs with the purple one working great on cloudy days, and orange, pink, green/ gold during other conditions. Keep trying different colour to find what works.

We catch a lot of squid on Samaki 70mm fork tail vibes too, my favourite colours lately on squid and fish are whitebait, uv squid, ghost bait, slimy mackerel. Keep jigging these vibes on the bottom, squid will grab at them repeatedly until hooked, and also get fired up and grab the squid jigs.

On Monday I chat to the legendary Doc Lures about Gold Coast squidding, this podcast will be on his website doclures.com, and on Spotify here:

We also caught some nice big flounder, flathead, bream this week on lures and yabbies.

Full moon has now passed, so the squid should come on thick this coming week, and hopefully plenty of big tailor.

Fun squid charter
