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

30 July 2022

Dad joke:

What do you call a fish with no eye? A fsh.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone I decided to move back down to the lower reaches of the Tweed this week as the water upstream was a bit dirty after last weeks rain. 

As expected at this time of the year flatties dominated the catch with some nice quality fish in the mix. Other species caught were bream and a few small chopper tailor which I was a bit surprised with as normally at this time of the year the tailor should be a lot better quality. 

Ken did well and caught a brace of quality flatties

Provided we don’t get any more rain I think the schools of big tailor will move into the river on the lead up to the next full moon. At this stage I have the 3rd and 4th available this week for charter bookings.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

It was good to see the flathead numbers increase as the week went on, they are everywhere now. Samaki vibes were catching them, as were the 4 inch Knockin Tail plastics rigged on 1/4 oz 3/0 hook jigheads. Bigger flounder are turning up too, and can be caught on vibes and yabbies.

Brian caught some solid arrow squid
Cam caught his first fish on lures including this 66cm flathead

The squid aren’t around in big numbers but they have suddenly appeared in bigger size. The Ecogear Dartmax 2.5 and 3.0 size squid jigs and Samaki vibes have been nailing them.

Best areas to fish have been Benowa, Runaway Bay and Southport. The water has been cold and hovering around 16-17 degrees. Just find the bait on the fish finder and you’ll find the fish.

This coming week has some good looking weather and favourable tides for the broadwater to chase tailor and squid in the deeper channels North of the seaway, and flathead over the shallow sand flats.

I still have Monday and Wednesday available this coming week.
