Now I can’t read anything.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone once again it was a great week on the water. 

The beginning of the week was especially good with nice overcast and sometimes light summer showers falling. These inclement conditions suit the fish and are slightly cooler which makes things more comfortable for us anglers.

We really mixed up the techniques this week with some deep water trolling as well as some deep water jigging. With the water starting to clear up after the recent flooding it even enabled us to do a bit of surface popper fishing around the top of the tides. 

13 yr old angler Morgan did a great job landing this GT on light tackle.

The species caught this week were whiting, flathead, bream, jew, giant trevally and mangrove jacks with atomic minnows, samiki vibelicous and mmd splash prawn lures doing the job.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Hi everyone, we mixed it up this week with some fishing in Nerang river getting some good flathead on Westin soft plastics and Samaki 70mm soft vibes.

While in the Gold Coast broadwater good catches of sand whiting continue to provide plenty of entertainment on ultra light tackle. On busy days you need to find quieter areas away from the water traffic, or the fish get timid as the day goes on. There is big schools of winter whiting in the Southern broadwater.

We also fished for mangrove jacks, catching and releasing two nice fish 51cm and 54cm early in the week.

The big new moon tides have been tricky to fish, I’ve been finding the run out most successful. The first few days of this coming week the flow drops off considerably in the mornings, which will suit the banks at first then the deeper channels and seaway later in the week for mulloway and reef fish.
