25 February fishing report


25 February 2022

*Heavy weather this week

*Great new lures in stock

*Clinto on radio 94.1FM tomorrow morning with Burty talking fishing options this coming week

Dad joke:

My wife tells me I have 2 major faults. 

I don’t listen – and something else.


G’day everyone, very limited fishing this week with the wind and rain. The Tweed is now muddy again but before that we were catching some nice flathead on vibes, and whiting on MMD surface lures.

A nice flattie like this one ready to be released always puts a smile on your face

Once this weather settles we will have to focus on lure fishing the downstream reaches during the upcoming week.

We will have fantastic fishing to look forward to in autumn and winter once La Nina weakens.

Very limited opportunity this week to fish but I did go a few times before the weather turned. Nerang and Coomera rivers are now a chocolate colour with more rain to come.

A nice morning at Nerang river

The broadwater procuced a lot of variety of fish on yabbies and Ecogear Isome worms, while some squid turned up in bigger numbers and size that normal for this time of year.

Patrick pulled in this good size arrow squid
The arrow squid are around in the broadwater

I also ran an early morning charter in Nerang river, and we caught flathead on soft plastics, then a jack charter one night which produced one jack and some bream before the heavy rain set in and shut the fish down.

This week I will look to fish the seaway for jewies and more, and the broadwater sand flats and deeper channels for the usual flathead, tuskies, whiting, squid and others using yabbies, plastics, vibes,  blade lures, and these new lures we have in stock:

 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.
