THIS WEEK’S GOLD COAST AND TWEED ESTUARY FISHING REPORT

14 NOVEMBER 2019

TWEED RIVER by Smithy

The conditions this week have been a bit tricky with strong Northerly winds blowing most days and an influx of cornflake weed being pushed in around the river mouths. 

Finding protected areas well upstream allowed us to do some deep and shallow water trolling for some flathead, bream, whiting and a few small Gt’s. When the tidal conditions suited we took advantage of it and started casting some Mmd Splash prawns and caught a few whiting and bream on the surface which was great fun.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people fighting for their lives and properties in the bush fire affected areas.

GOLD COAST RIVERS by Clinto

Again this week featured mixed wind directions and temperatures. In such conditions we do need to cover a lot of ground to find where the bait and fish are holding to keep our guests entertained.

David and his six year old son Mathew booked a Nerang river charter with me. Matty clearly outfished us, catching 20 fish for the day including some nice whiting, bream, trevally.

I like the look of the air temperatures in the week ahead. When the day time rises to around 30 degrees celcius and night time only drops to around 20, the jacks will get more aggressive and fishing for them will be more consistent, as will the fishing for big sand whiting.

The Samaki soft vibes have an awesome range of colours

This coming week has some neap tides at night which opens up more areas downstream to target jacks with live bait, while in the broadwater there will still be some strong run. Get out there early to take advantage or the optimum fishing time.

Let’s hope we get some rain at some point and lighter winds soon to provide some relief to all those suffering from the bush fires.

We are getting heavily booked over December and January.
