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

8 April 2022

*Gold Coast broadwater and Tweed river full of fish

Dad joke:

“Dad, can I eat the cake in the fridge?”

“Sure, but the dining room would probably be more comfortable.”

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

G’day everyone once again due to the consistent amount of dirty water flowing down the river I planned my trips on the run in tides near the entrance of the river. 

We caught a lot of fish and some good variety trolling slam and pontoon 21 crackjack lures as well as drift jigging with Ecogear zx 40 and Samaki vibes. The species caught were bream, flatties, whiting, grunter, moses perch and a few small giant trevally.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Tune in every Saturday morning 5-6am on 94.1 FM when I chat to Paul Burt and give fishing tips on his new radio show.

Good fishing with Samaki vibes

What a week! Wow so much fish out there in the broadwater. Everywhere we fished they were there, bait balls and plenty of fish feeding on them.

With the smaller neap tides and light winds it was the perfect time to fish all the main channel areas between the seaway and Sovereign island. It’s quite amazing how many sand whiting are widespread out there. They may have been flushed out of the rivers to the beaches by the floods, and are now returning through the broadwater.

Big numbers of fish
Good haul
Lovely mix

Run in tides have still been the go with the water clearing during those phases, run outs get too dirty with Hinze dam still at 103.6 % capacity today Friday.

We took full advantage all week and my clients enjoyed some great fishing and took home delicious fresh feeds. Yabbies have worked very well for sand whiting, tuskfish, and flounder, while Ecogear Isome worms tempted winter whiting, flathead, and Samaki 70mm forktail soft vibes in Cleopatra Tiger and Grey Ghost colours caught plenty of flathead and flounder.

Tasty feed
Oscar was stoked with his flounder

This coming week is the lead up to full moon next Sunday, and the fishing gets more tricky with bigger tides but we should still do very well. Especially with light to moderate winds. The lower to mid sections of Nerang and Coomera rivers will be worth a look for flathead, whiting, grunter, trevally, tarwhine, and bream. Hopefully the water starts to clear enough to fish well through the run out tides as well as run in.

Plenty of fish this week!
Oscar caught two big flounder
