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

18 February 2022

Dad joke:

My boss arrived at work in a brand new Lamborghini. I said “wow that’s an amazing car.”

“If you work hard, put all your hours in, and strive for excellence, I’ll get another one next year.”

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone it was great to have some good weather and very good tides this week. The main catch was some nice quality flatties that we caught trolling and drift jigging with Pontoon 21 crackjack and Samaki vibelicious lures. 

Kieran and his friend Dan caught a heap of fish trolling crackjack lures
Emma was all smiles catching this flattie on vibelicous lure

There were also some Gts around, they were only small but provided some fun light tackle sport. With the water slowly cleaning up after a lot of early season rain we took the opportunity to do a bit of surface fishing with MMD splash prawns. 

We caught a couple of whiting on surface but the bream were very dominant which created some fun topwater action.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

The fishing was good leading up to the full moon then slow on the moon and the day after. 

Sand whiting are still around in numbers and good size on the broadwater flats during the day and up the Nerang river at night, with the usual 40cm plus fish amongst the schools.

Mangrove jacks, squid, flounder, flathead, squire and tuskfish made up the rest of the catch this week. The weed has cleaned up with the bigger tides but it does pay to find the warmer patches of water to find the bait and the following fish.

There has been stormy evening and good weather in the mornings

This coming week we have good tides for wading the flats for big sand whiting, or fishing up Nerang river with lures for giant trevally and flathead.

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.
