3 June 2022 fishing report


3 June 2022

The fishing is getting hot! 🎣🔥

Dad joke:

Is my wife dissatisfied with my body?

A tiny part of me says yes.


G’day everyone we a had a great finish to the week on the Tweed with massive numbers of fish coming onto the deck. 

The areas where the clean ocean water is meeting the dirty water after all the rain is holding a biomass of bait. This bait is attracting a heap of bream and lots of school sized flatties that are averaging between 40 to 50 cm in length. 

Big numbers of flathead at Tweed river

Also in amongst the bait balls are a heap of school jewies which have only been around the 40cm mark which is a very healthy sign for the health of the river. I am very surprised with the amount of fish we have been catching that we haven’t nailed a couple of really big flatties or jew but i have a gut feeling that this week will produce the biggies with the better tides on the make. 

Well I am frothing to get on the water next week as there are certainly good numbers of fish around regardless of size and you cant complain about keeping a constant hook up and a bend in the rod for the day.

To book a private lure fishing charter with Brad call him on 0419 028 704 around 4-6pm daily, he has this Saturday and Sunday still available!


Isn’t this exciting! Clear skies and cool Westerly winds. I’m loving it.

Beautiful weather has arrived!
Hard hitting mac tuna

It looks good for the next week so we will make the most of it and fish hard! I only have this Sunday available in the coming week so SMS me 0432 990 302 to grab the spot, weather forecast looks good. I will be running guided beach fishing trips all winter and into spring, get in touch if you’re keen to book this highly enjoyable way of fishing.

Samaki slugs are deadly

I went for a fish with Paul Burt our local legend weather man to do some filming for his Step Outside tv show, which airs on 7mate every weekend. One of the days we did some crabbing, and another we chased tailor and tuna. Great fun and always a lot of fun fishing with Burty. These episodes will be on tv in the next few weeks.

There has been plenty of tailor and tuna busting up in the seaway, jumpinpin, and along the waves at South Stradbroke island. They are so much fun on medium tackle. Casting and cranking Samaki metal V2 and Flash stick baits are all you need. Get all the good gear from Sporty’s fishing store at Strathaird rd, Bundall.

Run in tides are still the best time to fish with clearer and warmer water. I noticed at the pin the other day the water temperature was 16 degrees and murky on run out tide.

The tides are small the next few days so fishing around the mouths are the go until we get closer to full moon on 14 June.

There are plenty of whiting around in the Sourhern end of the broadwater between the spit and Sundale bridge. Using live yabbies, and the deeper parts of channels are the best places.

Broadwater fishing & crabbing

North of the seaway there are flathead, flounder, tailor, mac tuna, tuskfish and plenty of bream and tarwhine to be caught. Morning run in tides are most productive. There are plenty of tailor, flathead, and bream in the beach gutters from South Straddie to Palm beach.

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