TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone the fishing on the Tweed slowed down slightly this week with slower tidal flow on the back of last weeks full moon. 

Regardless we still caught some nice fish with jigging the deep holes with vibes being the best technique. The species we caught included some nice quality flatties as well as bream and a bunch of small jewies.

Nelson was stoked catching a heap of flatties like this one

In fact we caught over 10 jewies on one charter and not one of the fish were over 50cm but this is a good sign of a healthy river to see these juveniles in such good numbers.

I predict some really good fishing for this oncoming week with the tides picking up again on the lead up to the new moon.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

This week was unusual on the broadwater, with the fishing quite shut down, but some good squid around.

The water in the broadwater has been a murky green colour which seems to be cold water coming in from offshore. This sudden change can put some fish off, so we have had some days when catching squid with jigs was the most productive tactic.

The Ecogear squid jigs that are awesome for the broadwater

The fish we have been catching, mostly on Ecogear ZX40’s smeared in Smithy’s UV prawn Sax scent, have been on the small side with flathead, whiting, flounder, bream, tarwhine the most common. 

The fishing will pick up this coming week as we get closer to new moon, and the water temperature and colour stabilises. We should see some nice tuskies and bigger flathead, flounder, tailor, and whiting then.

Jack was happy with this arrow squid

Arrow squid have been the main target, and are best targeted on the last half of run in tides through until the first half of the run out. I’ve been finding the Ecogear Dartmax 3.0 squid jigs most successful because of their slightly faster sink rate. 

It pays to give them a quick spray of Ecogear Egimax scent spray once a day too. Don’t spray too much on or it deters the squid. The RUI 3.0 jigs work nicely too in the Gold Coast broadwater.

A great day on the broadwater with Kev & family
Tegan caught this lovely tuskfish

Squid are a lot of fun to catch and even better to eat. I find it very addictive when they suddenly latch on to squid jigs then lunge to try and escape. Fight the bigger ones gently with a light drag or they will get off the hooks. Yesterday we started to catch some big tiger squid which is very good to see. They seem to like weed bed areas and rock walls, and a slow wind and pause retrieve.

Best areas to fish and squid have been the Western channel next to Wavebreak island, Labrador, Lands end area, and Runaway Bay to Hollywell. Find sandy areas with undulating bottom and the squid and fish will be there. Squid move around a lot hunting food so it pays to cover ground to find them.

I’ll do a squid how to vid soon, and will write an in depth article in next month’s Bush n Beach magazine.

June and July is prime time for squidding and fishing to get in touch soon to book your trip.
