Dad joke:

If a woman says she’ll be ready in 15 minutes, she will be.

No need to remind her every half hour.

 TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone once again I spent this week guiding between the Tweed River and the Broadwater. 

Working the areas where the edges of the clear water met the dirty water after last weeks rain provided the best results. 

Jim with a quality tailor caught on a pontoon 21 lure
Will with a nice flattie caught on a trolled slam lure

Fishing the fringes of discoloured water usually provide good results as these areas are where the bait concentrations are holding. Deepwater jigging as well as trolling produced a mixture of flathead, bream, whiting, giant trevally, moses perch and snapper.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

I don’t know about you, but there’s two things that always help me escape the bs going on in the world- good music, and good fishing.

There is a range of great fishing options now after the rain. Fishing has been very good everywhere from the Gold Coast seaway to Carrara in the Nerang river.

Jason caught some lovely whiting
Stunning flats

Bream in various sizes are in ludicrous numbers up the river in the brown run out tide water. We fished the Benowa to Carrara region this week with Samaki soft vibes and yabbies, and it was not easy to avoid the large numbers of bream but we caught some solid whiting, spotted grunter, and flathead. 

It is peak season for big sand whiting in the broadwater until February next year, and there are large schools of these sporty fish on the flats. Fish around 27-40cm in size are common, and the average size increases in the lead up to the full moon.

We also caught lots of flathead and bream on the flats this week around the seaway.

Nerang river catch

The almanac is very high this weekend so accompanied with stable temperatures and air pressure we will see some hot bite periods.

The mud and sand crabs will be in abundance at night time in Nerang river, the broadwater, and Jumpinpin.

You can watch the replay of my whiting wading segment with Paul Burt on 7mate here:
