Tweed Heads, and de- pending on conditions.
Not to be deterred, the oil slick conditions kept their enthusiasm going.
Tallebudgera Creek is ordinary, with sand right across the face.
Having not fished that far north, I’ve been told of anglers getting them- selves a bit lost, with the many green zones.
The Seaway is the best bet, as per usual.
Our fishers have had a couple of trips north to Seventeen Seventy and have been doing relatively well.
Ignorance is not an excuse and at least one other boat we know of got caught by aerial surveillance sitting just inside the green zone.
Match the hatch as the saying goes.

It’s good to be re- warded for your ef- forts, considering it is about a seven or so hour drive from the Gold Coast, so you really do need to plan for the trip to en- sure you have a good weather window.
It turned out to be a very costly mistake for the angler and crew.
A quick run saw the anglers come back with a mixed bag of fish, and a few coral trout and redthroat emperor came over the side.
Also, the sharks are apparently not too bad up there at the mo- ment, and the anglers only had to move once to get away from the taxman.
The fishos hooked- up to a few good fish they thought were reds, which dusted them up, and in true red fashion then went off the bite. www.bnb
As water temperature rises, we will see blue cobalt water move in, and with it the fish will come.
It just goes to show that it is better to be cautious than risk a fine.
Until next month, bent rods to you all.
