TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone I have been moving around a bit this week and doing some charters on the Gold Coast broadwater as well as the Tweed River.

On the broadwater we have been mainly jigging some Samaki vibelicous lures around with the result being a mixed bag of flathead, bream, tarwhine, whiting, squid, tuskfish and the odd small snapper. Fishing the middle reaches of the tweed river combining some trolling and jigging produced a lot of bream with some good sized ones in the mix. 

Even small GTs like this one fight well on light gear
Josh with a nice tuskfish caught on a vibelicious lure.

We also caught some flatties, whiting and some big eye and giant trevally. 

Remember that the border bubble has been expanded which is great news for all Queenslanders wanting to fish the picturesque tweed river.

Samaki Vibelicious 70mm soft vibes have been the stand out lures this week, accounting for flathead, jew fish, giant trevally, tuskfish, squid, flounder, tarwine and more.

In the clearer water during the spring tides the best colours are ghost bait, whitebait, midori mullet, lime crush, and chartreuse uv head. The best way to fish them is by drifting at 0.6-1 knot speed, and teabagging on the bottom with a very slight pause. Smear on some Sax scent every 15 minutes.

We did a few charters at night getting some sand whiting at the council chambers bank on yabbies and beach worms. Yabbies are also catching tuskfish, flathead, winter whiting, tarwine along the Western side of Crab island.

Flathead are schooling up at Currigee in 5-7 metre depth, and responding well to Samaki vibes.

This long weekend will be extremely busy on the broadwater. Get out there early or at night, or fish up the canals and rivers, or on the yabby banks during run in tide.
