14 March 2019 fishing report

This week’s Gold Coast and Tweed river fishing report from our charter boats.

TWEED

Not much has changed since last weeks report with the surface fishing still providing the most strikes over the shallow flats for Brad’s guests.

There was some queenfish mixed in with the trevally a couple of days ago on the first of the run in tide. The queenies were small but were still fun on light gear and also took our surface lures.

This good looking Goldspotted Cod was a welcome bycatch on Brad’s charter while trolling for jacks this week at Surfers Paradise.

If the weather prediction is accurate some storms are predicted over the few days which really fires up the jacks with the change in barometric pressure that storms create. 

GOLD COAST

Some good fishing this week with Clint finding some nice jacks on his Nerang river charters. Live whiting proved to be the successful bait in the hot conditions which jacks love.

Wayne caught his first ever mangrove jack on a charter last night, well done mate a bucket list fish!

It’s not hard to see why these are bucket list fish, with their brutal power and stunning looks it is a hell of an adrenalin rush catching them.

There was also some nice sand whiting over 30cm in the broadwater on Ecogear ZX40 blades coated in Sax scent goldprawn.

Colour 440 is my go to lure at the moment, I still have some pro packs left, to buy message this page or SMS 0432 990 302.

Some charter sessions producing 50 plus fish including dusky flathead, bartail flathead, sand whiting, goldline whiting, squid, winter whiting, tailor, queenfish, trevally, snapper, spangled emperor, tuskfish, bream, tarwine.

The most productive areas were the edge of the channel adjacent to the Seaworld rollercoaster, the reefy area east of Wavebreak island, and the Southern end of Runaway Bay.
