Broadwater Easter fishing trips

After a rainy week the sun has come out finally, and the forecast looks ok for the Easter weekend. Nerang river has got quite dirty again but the fishing will still be good for whiting, bream, grunter, and flathead using yabbies, beach worms, and flashy colour lures.

At Tweed river Brad reports that it was a bit tricky to work in with the constant rain showers coming through but the wind was very light and the inclement conditions really suit one of our most difficult fish to catch.

The fish in discussion is the elusive mulloway or more commonly known by its nickname Jewfish or jewie.  The unusual thing this week was that I was catching more jewies than flathead which is not a common occurrence and trust me even though we never caught a monster one they are a great fighting fish on light gear.

The trick with this fish is to fish deep holes that are holding bait with plastics and vibes with the best working lure for me being the Samaki vibelicous. The other aspect of specifically trying to target jewies is that they favour tide changes and because of their size they are relatively easy to mark on your sounder.

The other species caught this week were flatties, bream, grunter and a couple of giant trevally. It looks like we have some great weather coming into the start of the Easter Holidays so the bookings are starting to fill up.
