The Tweed at its best
David Solano | November 2015

Another good flathead about to be released.

The Tweed River and the local beaches have been firing lately. I’ll start with Terranora Creek and Broadwater where I’ve spent a fair bit of time chasing flathead in the shallows next to the weed banks with a lot of success.

Looking forward to warmer water
John Van Eyk | October 2015

There are still reports of a few trevally being caught.

Lately there have been reports of some reasonably large tailor taken down around Kingscliff area and Salt Beach. As well as the usual baits and metals, we’re seeing more anglers throwing Zman 5” JerkshadZ plastics, which can withstand damage from the tailor’s teeth.

Tweed River on fire
David Solano | September 2015

Bream are in abundance, with rock walls at the mouth of the river holding plenty of fish.

We finally got our first serious cold spell for winter on the Tweed a week or so back, with the temperature the coldest it’s been in ages, and the river is in the best shape that I have seen for quite some time.

Lots to target in spite of the cold
Ben Pilch | August 2015

Kaleum Gannon enjoyed a nice morning on the bream.

Well it’s definitely winter! Those bitter winds in the morning are certainly making it hard to get up, but the rewards are there if you can suffer the cold.

Tweed cleans up and the fishing fires
David Solano | July 2015

Craig Costigan, Wayne Van Den Broeck and friend with a nice haul of bream.

I’ve been whingeing and moaning about the condition of the water and how bad the river has been fishing lately. Just recently though, a group of keen fisho mates got together for a private bream comp. I was feeling pretty confident of a top 2 finish as there were only 2 boats in it with 3 on each boat, however, there was a bit of contention about the rules.

Snapper season looms
Ben Pilch | June 2015

Steve Patti with a nice Clarence Valley mulloway on a Jewie Jewel.

The cold weather of winter is definitely upon us, so it’s time to pull those beanies out of hiding. Cold weather means 1 thing for me — snapper. Nothing beats an early start, up and in the water while it is still dark, and back before 9.00am with a tasty feed of reds.

A mate with a nice bream caught where I launch my ’yak.

The Tweed River has turned a corner after all the rain we’ve had, and it has finally been restored to a fishing Mecca once again.

Post flood, the fishing picks up
David Solano | May 2015

Craig Costigan with a good flathead caught in some ordinary weather.

There has been a bit of a turn around on the Tweed at the time of writing. The water has finally cleared and the weather’s been great. I’ve been fishing all over the river in the past month, hitting Cobaki Lakes for flathead with shallow divers, successfully I might add, but couldn’t get a legal one that day.
