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

22 May 2020

Dad joke:

I saw a documentary on how ships are kept together.

Riveting.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

The Tweed river continues to produce good flathead, school mulloway, bream and the odd whiting in the middle to upper reaches.

Big winter flounder

On the flats in lower light with hardbodies that dive to 3.5m, and on Samaki Vibelicious white bait and Ecogear ZX40 colour code 447 in the deeper holes that are holding bait.

This colour Pontoon 21 works very well this time of year

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Had a bit of maintenance to do this week so only did a couple of trips to the Nerang river and Gold Coast broadwater. I will be doing a lot more trips soon and very much looking forward to it.

The bream will attack minnow style lures aggressively

The Nerang river is producing mulloway, flathead, giant trevally and bream on soft vibes and blade lures, the broadwater has squid, flounder, winter whiting, flathead biting around the Hollywell area, on yabbies and Ecogear ZX40 blades colour 440.

This bream whacked our secret lure
Little mulloway will readily chomp blade vibes like this Hurricane

This coming week we have neap tides which usually makes fishing up rivers very slow, but a window of opportunity near the mouths and deeper areas around them.
