Dad joke:

How do you deal with a sad astronaut?

Just give them some space.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Smithy & Clinto

The flathead really fired up this week, as well as some tuskfish, flounder, squid, sand whiting, winter whiting.

Matt caught his pb 69cm flathead on a yabby
Russell with a 70cm flathead

The small daytime tides allow for a bigger bite window for the flathead which have been hunting between the seaway and sovereign island.

Run out tides currently produce the best results in term of size and number, we usually release fish over 60cm, and keep a few in the 40-50cm range for customers.

Tasty seafood mix from the broadwater
Flathead can’t resist Samaki vibes

The best lures have been Samaki vibes in whitebait and pearl shrimp colours, as the fish are feeding on small baitfish. Our custom colour new hardbody which we have named “Candyman” is also catching lots of fish. Message us if you’d like to buy some.

The sand whiting are definitely moving downstream, we have been catching some good ones on yabbies.

New moon is on Tuesday so we will see a spike in feeding activity between now and a few days after the moon.
