G’day everyone once again we battled through some very hot and extremely windy days but the fishing was fantastic. 

The good thing about a big natural river like the tweed is that it offers a lot of variety, and places that provide good fishing and shelter from the prevailing wind directions.  The surface fishing with bassday sugerpen and mmd splash prawns was dynamic and as a guide it is so rewarding to watch my clients excitement as they watch the whiting , bream and flathead rise from the bottom to take the surface lures.

I know that I write about the surface fishing every week but it is the in thing all through our summer months. My friend and regular client Robbo who came surface fishing with me last week booked again and asked if we could go further up the river and deep water jig for the day and that also produced some good results. 

The deep holes holes also had some nice school flatties chopping on the vibes

We sounded the holes looking for some bait and fish marking on the sounder which were hard to find but once we found a drop the action was great. Jigging ZX40 and Samaki vibelicous vibes through the bait in around the 10 metre line through the holes produced a bunch of school sized flatties, giant trevally and nice jewies.

Some nice variety caught on my charters this week with mangrove jacks, estuary cod, monster whiting, flathead, and more .

It was great to see some big jacks again since the off season, there is nothing quite like them for an adrenalin thrill in estuary fishing I reckon. The estuary cod that Lex caught and released on Tuesday night put up a hell of a fight too, it weighed 7 kg.

The rest of the week we chased and found some big sand whiting and there were plenty of flathead mixed in with them as well as flounder and bream. We have some good tides over the coming days for the monster whiting, and with some wind they’ll be on the chew. Forget the almanac, if fish are hungry they will eat, simple as that.

The best areas to fish have been the banks near the Broadwater caravan park and Wavebreak island, especially during the middle two hours of tidal flow. Yabbies are the best bait and MMD splash prawns the best lures, especially in honey bee, and banana bender colours on calm, clear days and Sunburnt jelly in cloudier and/ or windier conditions.
