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

13 January 2023

Dad joke:

A man was admitted to hospital after swallowing 6 plastic horses.

His condition has been described as stable.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone this week I started my charters as early as possible as it has been getting too hot through the middle of the day and a bit uncomfortable for my clients. 

Have some mmd splash prawns ready to go and you might get the opportunity to catch a GT on light gear

The early morning starts have also been the most productive bite periods which is not uncommon for this time of the year with the quickly rising water temperatures. Working the deeper holes in the river still produced the best results but I rigged up a couple of extra rods with some MMD Splash Prawns and cast them at some random surface action from schools of Big Eye and Giant Trevally. 

Jack started his first lure fishing campaign with this nice flattie

The species caught this week were flatties, bream, whiting, school jew and the mentioned trevally.

Quote of the week from a charter customer: “Is there anything less impressive than a jetski?”

A nice mix of fishing this week and we caught mangrove jacks, mulloway, giant trevally, grunter, flathead, big whiting, flounder, and endless amounts of bream and tarwine.

Its like the relatively dry weather will continue here on the coast and the water near the seaway is getting very clean. It pays to find a bit dirtier and deeper water where bait is hiding. Ecogear ZX40 blades have been getting smashed and catching lots of variety.

5 jacks caught and released

Best areas have been Curlew island, Benowa, North Currigee. 

This coming week we have neap tides with morning highs getting bigger through the week as we move towards new moon on 22 January. There are high low tides during the day which are good for some whiting spots, or drifting the broadwater channels with vibes and yabbies.

Nice slatey for Andre on zx
