WE were blessed by the weather Gods on the Gold Coast again last weekend making a great run of fine weather and light winds two weekends in a row.
Not a bad week either with light to moderate winds and some cloud cover, conditions were fine to get out and about on the water.
Customer Allex had some luck over the weekend landing a quality flathead, well done.
Reports of nice bream keep coming in this week, Jumpinpin has been fishing well around Crusoe Island, Short Island, Eden Island, Tiger Mullet Channel, Whalleys Gutter and Jacobs Well. The Logan River, Coomera River, Wave Break Island and the Gold Coast Seaway are also producing fish. Best baits are Mullet Gut, Mullet Fillet, Prawns, White Pilchards, WA Pilchard pieces and Yabbies.
Schools of tailor were a bit quiet over the weekend but started to make an appearance again during the week on the last of the run in tide around the Pin Bar and Gold Coast Seaway. I did see a few schools of small queenfish around the pin bar over the weekend. Target the tailor schools by throwing metal slugs, surface poppers and walkers into the feeding schools, trolling hard body lures to locate the fish or drift WA Pilchards rigged on ganged hooks are also great methods.
For the off shore fisherman we will see nicer conditions by early next week, the weekend forecast is not looking the best for venturing out to sea.
At the time of writing my report we will see the wind swing S/SE and increase between 15-20+ knots by Saturday and some rain moving in. By Monday the winds will ease and tend N/NW light to moderate and the sunshine return to the Gold Coast. Might have to look for a spot out of the wind to try you luck on the weekend.
If you have any great catches to report or fishing photos please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org Good luck with the Fishing. Brett
