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

23 July 2021

*Flathead and whiting at Tweed river

*Good school mackerel and squid at GC broadwater

Dad joke:

I accidentally drank a bottle of invisible ink last night.

I’m in the hospital now, waiting to be seen.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone, the run of good flathead has continued, as is typical this time of year at Tweed river.

They are responding well to trolled minnow lures such as Pontoon 21 crackjacks through the shallows.

After cold snaps they are sluggish in the morning then wake up as the day goes on.

There has been some out of season sand whiting as well.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

On the days the weather behaved we caught lots of school mackerel and squid in the broadwater, and also some flathead, flounder, bream, tailor, trevally, and whiting.

The mackerel and tailor will take white pillies, small pillies, fast cranked small metals, and trolled deep diving lures. Look for baitballs on the sounder around the 6-7 metre depth and work the area when the tide is running.

For Queensland school mackerel I like using 10 lb Platypus Platinum main line, 12 lb fluorocarbon leader with small ganged hooks and a no. 3 ball sinker. They are incredibly fast and aggressive fish. 

Amazing fun on light tackle! Remember their minimum size is 50cm and possession limit of 10. Be very careful handling them too, they have super sharp teeth.

The razor gang seem to have scared the arrow squid out of the deeper water and into shallower.

Early next week looks like good weather and tides for the broadwater. I’ll be chasing more mackerel and squid for my charter guests, as well as flathead, tailor, tuskfish, flounder, whiting, bream, and whatever other surprise comes along.

This weekend looks quite windy from the West. Early morning run in tide along the Western shorelines and mid section of Nerang river is the best bet.

Tune in every Saturday morning 5-6am on 94.1 FM when I chat to Paul Burt and give fishing tips on his new radio show.
