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

6 November 2020

*Whiting once again biting

Dad joke:

Did you hear about the yacht builder that had to work from home?

His sails went through the roof

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day guys we worked hard again this week with most days pretty windy and the water was a bit grainy as a result of the wind and rain from the afternoon thunder storms. 

Never the less we still produced some fun fishing and some nice quality fish. The surface action was fun with the MMD splash prawns in the cooked prawn colour working well and producing a lot of whiting, some bream, and the odd flattie.

Parker with a nice flattie caught jigging a samiki vibelicious lure

Flatties are dramatic when they rise from the bottom as they leave a swirl of sand and mud on the bottom and a hole on the surface of the water as their bucket mouths scoff down the lure. 

As always we mix up the techniques and caught some flathead, bream, whiting and a few small gts jigging Samaki vibes and trolling hard bodied minnows.   

Dave caught this 37cm whiting on a mmd splash prawn as well

Allan with a nice big sand whiting

Similar to Smithy’s report we had a fair amount of strong wind at the Gold Coast broadwater. It did help the fishing though, with the sandbanks producing many solid sand whiting close to 40cm, and nice bream, blue swimmer crabs, and flathead.

The wind creates surface chop which gives the fish confidence in the shallow water, even on sunny days. The peak bite session occurred in the four day lead up to full moon and two days after, with mornings best. The slowest time around the banks was at high tide.

Some fishing action from the sand flats

This coming week we’ll have to work hard during the neaps but the quality summer whiting are there to catch. Using light fluorocarbon is essential to fool the bigger ones during the day.

*This is just a prediction. There are many factors when it comes to fishing and fish are unpredictable at times, there are no exact guarantees. We include this just for fun and see how it plays out every week.
