31 May 2019 fishing report

Well everyone there is no doubt that the days are getting shorter and the mornings are definitely getting cooler as we inch our way into winter.

The good news is that the weather is perfect through the day with warm and windless conditions and most importantly the flathead are becoming prolific.

The flatties are in good concentrations in the warm shallow areas through the middle reaches of the Tweed and Gold Coast waterways and are taking both cast and trolled lures.

Piers and son Alfie caught over 20 flathead on their charter with Brad at Tweed river

There has been reports of both tailor and bream making their annual migration up our coastline which is very exciting as they will move into our rivers in mass proportions from now until August.  

School size flathead are prolific in the rivers right now
