THIS WEEK’S GOLD COAST AND TWEED ESTUARY FISHING REPORT
A combined report from us this week as the drought breaking rain falls and puts the fires out across large areas in our magnificent states of Queensland and neighbouring New South Wales.
At Tweed river, Nerang river and the broadwater there has been some flathead, tailor, jacks, grunter and whiting being caught.
Ecogear ZX40, Samaki Vibelicious soft vibes, Pontoon 21 hardbodies have been the lures to use.
Yabbies and live bloodworms are catching big sand whiting in the broadwater as well as tuskfish and flathead.
Whilst there is some rain around now, the unbelievable fishing to come in the weeks and months ahead will make the wait worth while.
Get in touch to book your private charter, here is a round up of options and what to expect.
Plenty of thrill seeking fishing action is to come and we couldn’t be more excited. This is the flush out and reset we needed, and will spread and breed bait fish and prawns, which will attract predators.
Tweed river will be an amazing place to fish, and nobody in the world knows it better than Brad Smith. He is South East Queensland’s longest running fishing guide and the original lure only guide as well.
March is a great month for monster mangrove jacks, and Brad runs private lure only charters for 1-2 guests at this scenic and beautiful estuary.
The mulloway will be around again, the big flathead will return in numbers, and also on offer will be big sand whiting, large bream, and trevally. Often all of these iconic species and others can be targeted in one session with Smithy, with a variety of luring techniques.
At Nerang river we can expect big jacks as well, and mulloway, trevally, big flathead, big whiting, grunter, cod and various other surprises that turn up daily. Again Brad knows the area and the Gold Coast broadwater like the back of his hand, and can pick up guests by boat from their waterfront property or from various boat ramps and jetties.
Clint runs daily charters for 1-4 guests at Nerang river and the Gold Coast broadwater. He has been working in partnership with Smithy for over five years now. His private tours vary from catering for kids and beginners with a mix of easy to use bait and lure techniques, to more seasoned anglers with lures only.
In the weeks ahead Clint will be hunting a big variety of species in the area, with a variety of charter offerings. These include pumping yabbies then bait and vibe fishing the channels, crabbing, throwing cast nets, night time live baiting for jacks, seaway sessions with heavier tackle, and fishing the reef and sand areas around the islands in the broadwater.
Mulloway, mangrove jacks, big flathead, tuskfish, squid, trevally, tailor, sand whiting, winter whiting, flounder, cod, bream, snapper, tarwhine, are the main targets on our Gold Coast charters.
