Dad joke:

I was researching about Atheism.

Turns out it’s a non prophet organisation.


Smithy did one rain affected trip this week and caught some flathead. Today in the rain he was walking along Tweed river now casting his current favourite jack lure (Atomic Shiner in Tristo’s proton pill colour)

Keener than me ????


The next week should be good fishing at Tweed river for jacks, flathead, whiting, bream and more.

These are our top two selling lure packs on our online store:

  1. $119, free shipping plus bonuses including an awesome jack lure that is only available here, in very limited numbers, and never to be repeated again! Buy the pack here:
  1. $159, free shipping plus bonuses:

And here are some of Smithy’s top tips on fishing with his all time favourites lures:

  1. Troll with the tide in 1-4 metre depth, at 1-2 knots speed, you’ll catch more fish. Pay attention at all times that the lures are swimming straight(if not tune them) and free of weed.
  2. Jig blades and vibes with a short, quick consistent rhythm while casting or drifting
  3. Use surface lures in shallow water up to 60cm depth, sunny and 10-15 knot wind is best. Non stop retrieve for whiting.
  4. Use a metre of 10 lb fluorocarbon leader tied onto PE 0.6 braid for vibes and blade lures. Use 6 lb leader for trolling.
  5. Smear a drop of Sax scent all over lures to increase your chances of a bite.

More tips come with both fishing packs above. SMS 0432 990 302 after purchase to receive the ebooks link.

No fishing for me this week with the rain and wind. Much welcome rainfall though, over 100mm here at Bundall this week. 

I’m sure we’ll get more before winter, which will ensure some great fishing and squidding in the months ahead.

Exciting news, soon we’ll have our very own “app” available online, which may be one of the very first charters and fishing stores in Australia to do so?

It will be a one stop easy reference for fishing reports, weather, tides, tips, ebooks, tackle store, charter info and lots more.

Best of all it will be free to add to your phone home screen! Coming soon…

To book a charter with Clint SMS 0432 990 302 anytime, booking into April and beyond.
