Good week for fishing on Gold Coast

It’s been a good week to get out and about on the Gold Coast and chase a few fish, let’s see what was biting.

The Gold Coast  Seaway has been a great spot for a variety of species this week, our customers have reported good catches of Bream, Squire, Tailor, Trevally, Jew Fish and even a few rat Yellow Tail Kingfish have showed up on the pipeline.  Good bait schools have been moving through the Seaway and into the channel of the Broadwater, just look for the birds feeding and you will find the bait and fish.

Jumpinpin Bar has also been fishing well for Tailor, Jew fish and some nice Squire on the incoming tide.  Find the birds and again you will find the fish, live baits for the Jewfish will work a treat. Trolling Lures or casting metals slugs for Tailor and the Squire are taking a variety of live and dead baits.

Our Customers have caught a few nice Bream this week and some bonus Squire as bycatch, as we get closer to winter the fishing will jest get better and better.  Some good spots are Tiger Mullet Channel, Short Island, Mc Kenzie’s Channel, Jacobs Well, Dux, Tipplers Passage, Coomera River and Wave Break Island.  Best baits are Mullet Fillet, Fishos (Chicken Gut), Mullet Gut, White Pilchards, WA Pilchards Cubes and Yabbies.  A consistent burly trail is the key to keeping the Bream feeding and hanging around.

A few nice Flathead and Whiting have been caught around Crab Island, Wave Break Island, Jacobs Well Shoals, Bedrooms, Tipplers Passage and the Coomera River.  Yabbies are a good all round bait for both species, Worms are good for the Whiting and White Pilchards, WA Pilchards or lures will temp the Flathead.

At the time of writing my report it looks like we will see strong winds from the South on Saturday tending S/SE and easing as the week progresses.

If you have any great catches to report or fishing photos please email them to

Good luck with the Fishing.  Brett
