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

14 August 2020

*Tweed river firing

*Snot weed at broadwater but fishable

*More flathead showing up at Gold Coast

Dad joke:

Give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish and he’ll spend a fortune on gear he’ll only be using twice a year.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone this week was a little bit quiet towards the end of the week with the smaller tides but we still hit a few pockets of fish holding in the mid to upper reaches of the tweed. 

Pro Lure d36’s are great for trolling over flats

We trolled a combination of Slam and Pro Lure d36 lures between the deep holes and picked up a few flatties and bream. Once we reached a deep hole which are everywhere in the tweed we brought in the trolled lures and started some deep water jigging with a combination of of Ecogear ZX40, VX45, and Samaki vibelicous vibes and caught flatties, bream and a few giant trevally.

Nice mulloway on Ecogear ZX43
Chris with his first mulloway

I have been fishing the broadwater and lower reach of Nerang river this week. More flathead have been appearing, the Ecogear ZX43 vibes coated in Sax scent UV prawn are proving to be a big hit on them. Very useful lure in deeper water and faster flow and wind.

Chris had fun with this GT
Stephan with a beautiful school mulloway, his first ever fish on a zx vibe!

The Northern broadwater has had a lot of snot weed, but it is patchy so just keep searching for cleaner water and bait fish, they are moving around heaps.

Main species caught this week on lures and yabbies this week included  dusky flathead, bartail flathead, fringe eyed flathead, sand whiting, winter whiting, tarwine, bream, tuskfish, queenfish, crabs, squid, mackerel, tailor, trevally, mulloway.

Clare caught this oceanic queenfish

Next week we have new moon on Tuesday with tides building over the next few days we should see some great fishing, crabbing, and squidding.

Went for a fish with Burty (Paul Burt) on Wednesday to do some filming for his Step Outside show on 7mate, and caught mainly whiting.
