Doggone weather!
David Solano | April 2015

Fish on the Tweed the past month? Well it’s been pretty bad for me, as we’ve had so much rain the river has turned to mud with all that runoff coming from Terranora Broadwater, Bilambil Heights and Cobaki Broadwater. The outgoing tides have been awful; I’ve been continuously dodging floating logs, bits of land, and if it wasn’t so bad I would have laughed at seeing a floating island go on by.

Sweating on the pelagics arriving

A solid mulloway on a Croaker Lures Jewie Jewel.

Well it’s March and everyone is getting keen about our land based game season — keeping an eye on sea surface temperatures, wind direction, and rainfall in the catchment. These are all factors that can play a big part in how the LBG action plays out, and how hard you may have to work for a fish.

David, the flathead jinx
David Solano | March 2015

Just recently, I did something I’ve never done before; I bought a filleting knife. As I don’t keep any of the fish I catch, I’ve never needed one. After spending a good 5 hours on the water the other day, I went down to the local fish shop. I really felt like a classic Aussie feed of flathead and chips. Well I looked at the price, and it was a whopping $39.95 a kilo!

February still sees a lot of people chasing mackerel in the usual places like Shark Bay, Black Rock and Angourie.

Wow, where do I start? The rivers and beaches are going off at the moment, and after witnessing some of the catches from outside, I reckon it’s pretty good out there too.

Little rain adds to the fishing options
Ben Pilch | January 2015

Come January, our run of pelagics is in full swing. With a lack of rain leaving nice clean water for the annual arrival of the spotted mackerel, the usual spotty grounds like Shark Bay and Angourie should see a fair few fish over the coming months.

A great time for an adventure
David Solano | January 2015

This estuary cod put up a good fight and was released after being photographed.

Happy New Year, it’s that festive time so first up I’m going to mention some of the great family fishing spots around the Tweed.

Gear up for the mackerel invasion
Ben Pilch | December 2014

Come December, the east coast hot currents are boring down from Queensland and our run of pelagics is in full swing. Chasing spotted mackerel will be the mainstay offshore from the lower Clarence, and the usual mack grounds like Shark Bay and Angourie should see a fair bit of traffic and fish in the coming months.

Summer yakin’ on the Tweed
David Solano | December 2014

Some quality whiting have been taking surface lures lately and the action should get better with the warming weather.


It’s December on the Tweed, holidays are coming up, the water is hot and the place is pretty packed with shore-based fishos.
