As another great week of weather on the Gold Coast comes to an end, let’s see what August has in store for anglers trying their luck.
Reports of some quality fish including jewfish being landed this week around the Pin Bar entrance and also fishing the pipeline and north wall of the Gold Coast Seaway. Drifting live Pike, Mullet, Yakkas and Herring has produced fish around the last 2 hours of the run in tide and also fishing the tide change and the first 2 hours of the run out tide. Working big Zman plastics and large Zerek fish trap vibes has been a very productive way to entice a bite from a big Jew.
Customers have done well with reports of a few nice big Flathead coming in this week. Local angler Jeremy sent in a pic of his 90cm+ Flathead he caught on a pilly at the Pin last weekend. Jumpinpin and the Gold Coast Seaway are starting to produce some extra-large fish into the 90cm range. Flathead have been taking Zerek Tango Shads on the troll, Zman Plastics and also Zerek fish traps have worked well casting on the edges of the sandbanks as the tide runs out. Good spots to try your luck are Brown Island, Coomera River, Aldershots, The Neverfail Islands, Tipplers Passage, Jacobs Well Shoals, Bedrooms, Curtis, Jumpinpin Bar, Kalinga Bank, The Pin Bar Mouth, Crusoe Island, Tiger Mullet Channel, Eden Island, Logan River Mouth and Canaipa Passage.
Tailor have been caught this week, the size of the fish have varied from small choppers around 30cm mark up to some nicer sized Greenbacks depending on your luck and the size of the fish in the school you find. Fishing the beach gutters at night with whole WA pilchards has also been successful as well as trolling hard body lures, casting metal slugs, poppers and also drifting WA pilchards around the Jumpinpin Bar and Southport Seaway entrance and channels has been working well on the run in tide.
Some good catches of Bream have been taken this week, best spots are the Gold Coast Seaway, Wave Break Island, Paradise Point, Runaway Bay Canal mouths, Lands End, Coomera River, Dux, Crusoe Island, Tiger Mullet Channel, Short Island and Logan River are worth a look. Mullet Fillet, Mullet Gut, White Pilchards, Squid, Prawns and Yabbies are a good option.
Hope you all have a good weekend and get out for a fish, if you have any reports please let us know how you went.
