6 February 2021 fishing report & news


6 February 2021

*Jacks still feeding hard

*Surface action hot at Tweed river

Dad joke:

Told the missus she was drawing her eyebrows too high.

She looked surprised.


G’day everyone this week has fished well on the Tweed but very early morning starts were required for the best results.

The reason for starting early was to time the tide changes and at the moment the water temperature has been climbing to 28.2 degrees by the middle of the day. When the water gets that hot the best results come from fishing the deep holes where the water is slightly cooler on the bottom. 

Nice summers day at Capri

This week produced some mangrove jacks that took a liking to some deep diving minnow lures trolled in tight to structure. These hard hitting fish are one species that do like the warm water and will stay on the bite for another couple of months. 

Fishing the deep holes produced some nice flatties as well as some whiting and bream. The best lures this week have been strada dredge and atomic shiners as well as Samaki redics and the ever reliable Samaki vibelicous. Clint and I have just received an order of the new Pro lure blades that look fantastic so i cant wait to give them a good work out next week.

The mighty mangrove jacks have been frothing and aggressive this week with the hot weather and water temp sitting around 29 degrees. It takes a lot of effort and attention to detail to successfully target these amazing fish, but when it all pays off it is so rewarding.

This is peak time for the jacks so if you want to have a go at night the only dates still available this season are 19th and 24 February, then 4th and 25th March.

This week I’ll be chasing big sand whiting again in the Gold Coast broadwater in the mornings, as well as a variety of fish in the deeper cooler channels on Samaki vibes, Ecogear ZX’s, and Pro Lure V42.

New moon is this coming Friday, we have big morning tides followed by smaller night tides.
