TWEED RIVER by Brad Smith

The weather at present has been good with light winds and a slight drop in the temperature. It will be interesting to see what happens towards the end of the week with the big low pressure system inching its way towards the east coast.

The flatties are starting to respond to well trolled lures along the drop offs and the deeper holes are producing a few on plastics and Ecogear ZX40s.

Trevally are still making random raids on the baitfish around the tide changes while bream and whiting are crunching surface lures over the shallow flats.

GOLD COAST

Clint has found some solid flathead around the 60cm mark for his clients around Paradise Point and Sovereign island, on Ecogear ZX40 blades coated in Sax scent goldprawn flavour, and soft vibes and Squidgy bug plastics in bloodworm colour.

There are still some squid, whiting, squire, flounder, tailor, trevally around too.

It will be very interesting as Brad said to see how Cyclone Oma progresses. Obviously we don’t want her coming too close to cause damage to infrastructure but it would be nice to get some rain out of the system.

Either way the wind and swell will be big, offshore fishing will not be an option. You’ll need to find sheltered, leeward areas in the estuaries to wet a line.

Perhaps stay home safe, watch some Netflix or do some fishing gear maintenance, and be ready to encounter some good fishing next week after the storm clears!

Cheers
Smithy & Clinto
