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

22 October 2022

Dad joke:

What’s the worst vegetable to bring on a boat?

A Leek.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone it has been a bit of a rollercoaster week with the weather but I still managed to do a few days on the water. 

For some reason the best bite periods came on the run in tides and that was regardless of whether we were fishing the flats or the deep holes. The fish caught this week were flatties, bream, whiting and once again some small school jew. The best lures this week were the ever reliable zx 40s in the deep holes and pontoon 21 crackjacks worked across the shallows.

I am still puzzled of why the run in tides fished so well in places that normally fire up on the run outs but that is the intriguing  part of being a guide and working in with good old mother nature.

Plenty of flathead at Tweed river

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Some wild weather coming in this weekend with Sunday looking the worst. I’m hoping we don’t get too much here at the Gold Coast, 100mm is fine and won’t affect the fishing. It’ll probably even help it further.

These lures are deadly

This week we fished the broadwater channels on the smaller tides, catching three types of flathead, sand whiting, winter whiting, tarwhine, bream, tuskfish. Yabbies as usual scored lots of fish, and I used Ecogear breamer vibes for the first time, catching over 20 fish per session on them. These little lures have an impressive strike rate and I’ll be using them a lot more, in tandem with the ever reliable Ecogear ZX40’s and Samaki Vibelicious.

If you haven’t tried the new Zman 2.5” ST Grubz and 2.5” Prawnz, give them a go. We love small lures because they get a lot of bites from small to big fish. As a charter guide we try to keep rods bending as often as possible. On all our lures we like to smear some scent on too for added effect, our favourites are Sax scent uv prawn fot prawn imitation lures, and Pro Cure saltwater inshore for minnow and grub style lures.

We also fished some of the shallows this week, wading for whiting. The whiting weren’t as big as usual, the bigger ones could be in the seaway getting ready to spawn. They should be back on the flats this coming week. There were also plenty of flathead on the flats this week, I landed a 60cm on 3 lb fluorocarbon line, it put up quite a fight.

A very unusual catch, an Octopus in a beer bottle

Once the rain finishes the next few days I’ll be back out there chasing big whiting and more flathead, and look for trevally in the canals on plastics and hardbody lures.

Whiting season is firing up

We’re getting booked up until December now, and then it’s the busiest time of the year for charters. I only have seven days still available in November.
