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

15 April 2022

*Plenty of fish everywhere

Dad joke:

I applied for a job hanging mirrors.

It’s something I can see myself doing.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone it was once again a fun week on the Tweed with big numbers of fish and a variety of species smashing our lures. 

The bulk of the fish taking the lures were bream in fact they were that thick in places we had to move positions to get away from them to find other species. 

We got on to a nice school of jewies this week like this one caught by Will
Young Zac with a nice little GT

Other species we caught this week were flathead, whiting, grunter, giant trevally and school jew. The best performing lures this week were pontoon 21 crackjacks and Samaki vibelicous. 

The weather for next week looks perfect and the smaller tides should really suit some deep water jigging so and hopefully target some jewies. Have a great weekend and a safe and happy Easter.

The flatties of all sizes were taking lures especially on the run out tides

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Like Smithy at Tweed there were fish everywhere in the broadwater, it’s hard to not catch fish at the moment with yabbies, Samaki vibes, Ecogear ZX40’s and Ecogear Isome worms.

Dave caught and released this stunning tarpon
Lachlan with a big mudcrab

The channels have been fishing very well in depths of 5-7m for sand whiting, winter whiting, school flathead, flounder, squire, mud crabs, sand crabs, and the usual tarwhine and bream.

Nice mix of fresh fish
Big Tarwhine
Harry caught this nice flattie casting a Daiwa double clutch lure
This colour is deadly on flatties

Full moon is this Sunday, so the bigger tides will keep clearing the waterways and the mid to upper reaches of the rivers will fish well. The channels north of the seaway will run hard so fish them around an hour either side of tide changes. Hopefully we start to see some squid soon too in the broadwater on the run in tides, and 24 degree water.

Good crabbing and fishing

I will be doing plenty of trips walking the flats over the next few months, casting lures for flathead, whiting, and bream. Hardbodies such as Daiwa double clutch, Pontoon 21 crackjacks, Pro Lure ST 72, and soft plastics provide great fun, and we’ll also have a go for monster flathead using MMD whiting glides, John Costello’s soft glide, and Samaki boombait shads.

Walking the flats this week

It’s such a fun, visual, relaxing way to fish, seeing a flathead chase down lures in shallow water. The last few trips I have done have resulted in 15-25 fish of various sizes.

Some great catches

Tune in every Saturday morning 5-6am on 94.1 FM when I chat to Paul Burt and give fishing tips on his new radio show.
