25 March 2023 fishing report 🎣


25 March 2023

Dad joke:

My doctor has advised me to stop drinking.

It’s going to be a massive change for me. 

I’ve been with that doctor for 15 years.


G’day everyone here we are again at the end of another week on the Tweed. I have to be honest I had to work hard again this week to produce some fish with the water temperature still very high up around the 28 to 30 degree mark and a fluctuating barometer. 

Paul caught this flattie trolling a slam lure

But as guides we work hard and keep our composure and trust our experience to get the job done for our valued clients. The key was very similar to last week and that was to fish deep on the bait schools holding in the holes and to cover some water trolling through the channel contours of the river.

The best results came from jigging the holes with Ecogear zx 40 and Ecogear breamer vibes and when it came to trolling the Slam hard bodied minnow worked very well. The species caught were flatties, bream, big eye trevally, whiting and small school jewies.

Fishing in the broadwater has been steadily improving this week. We are nearly at my favourite months of the year, April to December. There has been tons of small bait fish coming in, a slight drop in water temperature, and a nice bit of rain.

It is coming alive big time, and the December to March king tides are over until later in the year thankfully!

The MMD vibe tempted this tuskfish

Daily catches have included sand whiting, winter whiting, dusky flathead, bartail flathead, flounder, tuskfish, snapper, tarwhine, bream, tailor, moses perch, yakka. 

MMD soft prawn vibes and Ecogear ZX40’s have been catching the most fish.

Best areas have been the deep hole, Southport West channel, Wavebreak West channel, Runaway Bay channel.

Six bar cod on MMD vibe

I have a number of days available this week, the weather looks good! I will be fishing the deeper areas with vibes, chasing tailor with Zman plastics, or wading for whiting with yabbies or flathead with My Lure Box soft glides. Charters are flat out busy from next week onwards with Easter season.
