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

2 April 2020

TWEED AND GOLD COAST RIVERS by Smithy & Clinto

Dad joke: 

People said I’d never get over my obsession with Phil Collins.

But take a look at me now!

I feel like we need a sense of humour more than ever in these trying times, so we’re going to share Dad jokes regularly.

Here’s some more laughs from the one and only legendary Russell Coight:

Well the news from the fishing scene is we won’t be running charters for a few months at least, but the good news is we’re running Echarters! 

See below for more info 😉

We’ll still try to do weekly reports and tips. The current advice is stay home unless it’s necessary to go out. Fishing is still allowed in Queensland so if we’re all sensible this won’t be locked down. Go solo and stay clear of others. Avoid unnecessary trips to servos and shops.

Some big grunter are feeding on prawns in the rivers

Myself and Brad have been doing a bit of solo fishing close to home. The Gold Coast broadwater/ Nerang river area between Budds beach and Sovereign island is still producing big sand whiting, winter whiting, flathead, flounder, tuskfish, and the squid are returning. There are still heaps of bream everywhere and they are getting bigger.

Lots of bream and trevally are around

A lot of baitfish and prawns are moving around and there are trevally busting up around the seaway area.

The whiting are big and fat

The Tweed river is producing heaps of whiting, flathead, bream on surface lures, vibes, hardbodies.

It’s been a tough year already but we’re keeping our chins up and we’ll still be here when this crisis settles. 

We’ve seen a number of other new charter operators start up lately which make it tough in an already crowded market but we’ve seen many come and go over the years. 

Cheers
