It’s been a good week on the Gold Coast with light to moderate winds and plenty of different species on the bite both inshore and offshore.
Our customers have been nailing some nice sized Jew Fish around the Jumpinpin Bar entrance on live bait this week. The average size is around 90cm, they are a great fighting fish and eat quite well at that size. Some large GT’S have also been menacing live bait in the same area. The water quality is excellent on the incoming tide. Also try The Gold Coast Seaway as there has been plenty of bait fish showing up, you will find some nice Jew Fish, Trevally, the odd King Fish and Tailor.
Mangrove Jack have started to come back on the bite after the SE wind cooled things down a bit. Land based, in a boat or Kyak there are heaps of spots to try, fish structures like Bridges, Rock Walls, Rock Bars, Jetty’s, Pylons and fallen trees. Live bait is a great option, just be ready for the bite and don’t give them any room to bolt back into their snag or it will be all over in a flash. Casting hard body lures and plastics are popular methods, also surface poppers at night or early morning can produce quality fish.
Some nice Mud Crabs were caught this week in the Coomera River, Pimpama River, The Never Fails, Jacobs Well, Tiger Mullet Channel, Tipplers Passage, Logan River and Canaipa Passage. At the time of writing my report we have some great fishing conditions on the way with light to moderate E/NE winds for the weekend and plenty of Sunshine heading into next week.
The waterways will be extra busy during Christmas & New Years, be safe and courteous to your fellow boaties and enjoy the festive season. If you have any great catches to report or fishing photos please email them to email@example.com Good luck with the Fishing.
