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

5 November 2021

*Broadwater producing variety

Dad joke:

My wife gave birth in our car on the way to the hospital.

I named him Carson.

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone, I have had a pretty big week of guiding and spent the first part of the week fishing the middle reaches of the broadwater. 

The broadwater once again produced a real mix bag of species on lures which included flatties, bream, tarwhine, flounder, tuskfish, whiting and even the odd end of season squid. 

The best lures were Ecogear ZX 40s and Samaki vibelicous in around the channels in 4 to 5 metres of water. I also had the opportunity to do two trips back on my beloved Tweed River after a long spell due to the covid border issues.

It was great to get back to the mangroves and cane fields and no boat traffic and the fishing was great. Deep water jigging with Samaki vibelicous lures in the middle reaches of the river produced some quality flatties, giant trevally and a couple of school jew, and of course the ever reliable bream.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

This week I mixed up the tactics with some shallow flats fishing for flathead and whiting, and some days fishing the channels and catching tuskfish, flathead, flounder, squid, and whiting. 

Ecogear Isome worms in red colour and XL size have been working exceptionally well on my charters. Cut each worm in half and use like bait on a no.4 size baitholder hook.

We also have new blades which work well, are good quality, and great value. They also have free postage:

New moon is today Friday, and there are some big day time tides. This means strong flow around the mouths, so unless you’re targeting the tide changes, try to find areas outside the main current. These areas include upstream sections of the rivers, the broadwater between the spit and Sundale bridge, canals, lakes, and areas protected by points and islands.

Water temperature in the broadwater is still around 22 degrees, and 24 around Isle of Capri. The water is very clear on the run in tide so try natural and neutral colour lures, unless its cloudy, low light, or choppy conditions.
