7 June 2019 fishing report

The middle reaches of both the Tweed and Nerang rivers are producing amazing numbers of flathead of all sizes at present, with most days producing over 20 fish per trip.

There have been some good numbers of bream attacking our lures as well in the same area but at this stage they have been small. The big bream are not far from entering our river mouths. 

Small giant trevally are still hanging around the deeper holes in the middle reaches and are hitting the lures around the first of the run in tides.

The GT’s are still grabbing Ecogear ZX40 lures fished in deeper holes

Smithy & Clinto’s tip of the week:

Time and time again we see people trying to monster good sized fish to the boat such as big flatties and jewies.

Putting too much pressure on them either pulls hooks or straightens them or simply busts the joiner knots between the braid and leaders. 

The best success comes when good fish are hooked is to have a well set drag on your reel and a slow and steady approach while maintaining a constant even pressure. 

There is nothing like catching a big fish on light line and small lures and the drawn out drama that goes with the experience.      

Cheers

Smithy & Clinto
