GOLD COAST RIVERS by Smithy & Clinto

We’ve both been fishing the Gold Coast broadwater this week with squid once again dominating the catch leading up to full moon on Sunday.

We have also caught some bartail flathead, dusky flathead, flounder, winter whiting, tarwhine, bream, trevally, and a few sand whiting.

Fishing highlights from Saturday
The squid are getting huge
Shane caught this nice 53cm flathead on a zx lure

Next week the sand whiting should continue to increase in numbers, and the squid and fish will appreciate feeding during the smaller tides in the Northern broadwater and seaway. 

Tune in every Saturday morning 5-6am on 94.1 FM when Clint chats to Paul Burt on his radio fishing show.

Lovely mix from the broadwater

*This is just a prediction. There are many factors when it comes to fishing and fish are unpredictable at times, there are no exact guarantees. We include this just for fun and see how it plays out every week.
