“CLARKIES” GOLD COAST FISHING REPORT AS SEEN IN THE GOLD COAST BULLETIN EVERY FRIDAY

17/04/2019
Posted by: BrettC

Hi Everyone, hope you’ve all had a great week, it’s fantastic to see all our Houseboats heading out on the Gold Coast waterways to enjoy a nice Easter break. If you’re keen to catch a feed of fresh fish and crabs for Good Friday let’s see what’s been biting and where.

Bread and butter species like Bream, Whiting and Flathead are a great target option if you’re keen to chase a feed of fresh fish for Good Friday on the Gold Coast or Tweed. All these fish can be targeted by everyone either land based or if you have a boat or Kayak. Land based try Jacobs Well Jetty, Cabbage Tree Point Beach, Coomera River Highway Bridge, Santa Barbara, Jabiru Island, Paradise Point Jetty, Lands End Biggera Waters, Grand Hotel Jetty, Marine Stadium, Nerang River, Currumbin Creek, Tallebudgera Creek and Tweed River. If you own a boat try around Currigee, Paradise Point, Wave Break Island, Nerang River, Tiger Mullet Channel, Jacobs Well and the Tweed River. I recommend using burley when targeting Bream, a pellet burley like Stimulate or Wilson Pellets will work well. The best bait for Whiting is worms, for Bream and Flathead try Prawns, White Pilchards, WA Pilchards, Mullet Fillet or Yabbies.

Customers reported schools of Tailor around the Gold Coast Seaway, Northern Channel near Currigee, Paradise Point, Pin Bar mouth, Tiger Mullet Channel and up Canaipa Passage this week on the run in tide. Also a few Tailor have been caught in the surf around Surfers Paradise, Main Beach  Sea World and the Sand Pumping Jetty. Best baits were whole WA pilchards, White Pilchards and strips of Mullet Fillet. Towing Hard body lures is a good option & help to cover as much ground as possible to locate schools of Tailor.  Once located, throwing metal slugs or surface lures should do the trick if they are feeding on the surface.

Sand Crabs have been around in good numbers throughout most of the main channels in the Broadwater and Jumpinpin this week. Usually placing your pots on the edges on the channel near the drop off will work well. At high tide the crabs have still been moving on top of the sandbanks in amongst the weed beds.

Smithy from Brad Smith Fishing Charters reports on the Tweed River Now that the water temperature has dropped the flatties are starting to fire up in the deep holes and along the shallow sand and mud flats. Try using some Ecogear ZX blades and soft plastics in the deeper holes and try trolling some Pontoon 21 crackjack minnows along the shallow edges. Remember that the lures must be continuosly tapping the bottom when trolling when targeting flathead.

 

Clint reports Currigee and Runaway Bay were firing on yabbies, and Ecogear ZX40 blades smeared in Sax Scent goldprawn. Fish caught included good size Tuskfish, Whiting, Squid, Squire, Flounder, Flathead and Grassy Emperor. Areas that fished well were Lands End, Runaway Bay, the reef at Currigee and Biggera waters.

 

Please keep in mind our fabulous waterways will be very busy during the Easter holidays, take it easy and be considerate of other boaties and everyone will have a great time.

 

Hope you all have a good weekend and get out for a fish, if you have any great catches or photos you would like to share, please email us and let us know how you went.

Being up to date with the rules and regulations when fishing in Queensland is very important if you are looking at keeping a feed of fish and crabs. We do recommend you take the time to be well informed on how big a fish should be, bag limits or what crabs you are legally allowed to keep before you go fishing. Follow the link to Queensland Fisheries website to view current regulations http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/rules-regulations or you can also pick up a rule book from us at Coomera Bait & Tackle free of charge.
