I asked my wife if I was the only one she had ever been with.

She said yes, all the others were nines and tens.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone it was a bit of a wild week weather wise but the days we did fish the results were fantastic. 

The Tailor for the first time in over a month were almost non existent but good numbers of flatties made up for that. The flatties were taking our vibes jigging in the deep holes and were also abundant drifting as well as trolling in the shallows and channels. 

The run out tides produced the best bite times but in general flathead always seem to favour the draining tides. We also caught a number of small to medium sized bream with the odd big one also smashing the lures.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Some mixed weather this week as has been the norm for the whole winter so far. The mornings before the wind comes up

has been the best time to catch flathead and big arrow squid.

This coming week is the lead up to full moon next Saturday, which means there will be good fishing to be had. 

The mornings tide sizes are ideal for the broadwater, the afternoon ones are bigger which suit the rivers.

Flathead, tailor, mackerel, arrow squid, flounder, bream activity should all pick up suddenly then drop off on and a few days after full moon. Flathead are preferring the run out tides to hunt at the moment. The ideal time to catch squid is last three hours of run in, first two hours of run out.

Gold Coast broadwater fishing

Best squid jigs will be Ecogear Dartmax, Daiwa Emeraldas nude, and RUI’s, all in 2.5 and 3.0 sizes. 

Best blades will be Ecogear ZX40 colour 440, Pro Lure V42 in whitebait, and Samaki Vibelicious forktail 70mm in whitebait and ginger squid colours.

Best bait live yabbies, whitebait, and small pillies.
