GOLD COAST AND TWEED COAST FISHING REPORT
Offshore this week has been a little quite with some below average conditions that saw not many boats venture out to see whats biting, For the boats that got out there we have had some fairly good reports in close and out to around the 90m mark.
Spanish Mackerel have been fairly quiet down tweed end of the coast yet some anglers got into them from Palmy Reef and Gravel Patch and also out from the Seaway.
Wahoo have still been seen around the drop offs of 9 Mile trolling Hard body lures around that 6-9 knots but not biting as well as the last couple weeks.
Trolling hard bodies and heavy weighted skirts have been working well out wider in the 45 fathoms with a few Wahoo sitting out wider.
The Black Marlin are still around but not in numbers after the last moon, having said that they are still getting caught around Spot X and along the 50m depth.
Tuna are still on the run with some good Longtail and Yellowfins getting caught from Tweed all the way up past the Seaway with most getting caught on hard bodies.
Inshore fishing has been pretty good this week with a good number of Mangrove Jacks still getting caught in most river systems from Tweed to Coomera Rivers, with most fish sitting in close along the Rock walls and Pontoons and being teased out with deep diving lures and a few on surface poppers.
Bread and butter species have been fishing well with many reports of Sand Whiting on the bite, anglers have been chasing these by using either live worms or surface lures along the sand flats.
For those chasing some lizards some alright numbers being caught in the lower reaches of the Tweed River up north end of the coast has been a little quiet on the flathead but have been producing some good Squid on the high tides around Wave Break Island.
The beaches along the South East Coast have started to see some quality fish with some Dart, Whiting and Sea Bream in the deep gutters.
