10 January 2019 fishing report and tips

This week’s Gold Coast and Tweed estuary fishing report:


The shallow parts of the Tweed River is still producing some flathead, bream and whiting on surface lures with bassday sugapens and mmd splash prawns being the choice of lures.

There are a few flathead in the deeper holes with soft plastics and vibes slowly worked across the bottom being the best technique.

Keep an eye out for any birds and surface activity around the tide changes as there has been a mixture of giant, big eye and tealeaf trevally on the prowl.

Gold Coast

Clint has been sticking to the broadwater for a wide range of species on Ecogear ZX40 blades coated in Sax scent, and pumping yabbies with kids on charters. The deeper water is best with the clear and calm weather.

This coming week should see quality improve with less traffic and noise on the water. 

The best options are chasing jacks late afternoon/ evening or early morning, and bigger numbers and sizes of sand whiting in the Nerang river at night.
