Brad Smith Fishing - Reel Time
One of our top picks in Surfers Paradise. Brad Smith Fishing Charters takes you fishing around the numerous waterways of Tweed River and Gold Coast waters. Their experienced and professional crew has two boats. Which means if you can’t find a spot here, just scroll down and click on the charter operator’s name.
Here, we have Capt. Clint who’s been fishing the local waterways for nearly 20 years. His mentor, Brad Smith, has shared his expertise with Clint, and together they offer professional service.
Not only will you get to fish for the likes of Flathead, Whiting, Bream, Tailor, Trevally, Mulloway, and Mangrove Jack, but you will also learn. Clint likes sharing the tips on how to present the bait properly, and will share some hacks about more advanced techniques as well.
Together, you will fish around the Gold Coast waters. This place is a renowned tourism destination, has golden beaches, beautiful scenery, and most importantly - a fine selection of fish species.
You will join Clint on his 22’ Southwind commercial boat that can take up to six people. The vessel is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, and has enough room for all onboard. The boat is rigged with fishfinder, GPS, has a live bait well, and a wireless trolling motor. You will find a sunroof, padded seating, and a large forward casting platform―fly fishermen, we’re looking at you.
The crew will provide quality fishing gear, and will take care of the license. You should bring some snacks or a proper meal, and will get some soft drinks and water onboard. These waters are calm, so the chances of seasickness are low.
Pack sunblock, a cap, sunglasses, put on comfortable clothes and footwear, bring a camera along. If you’re a family with kids, welcome onboard! The crew will gladly take you on, just as they will accommodate experienced anglers.
Get your backpacks, and hop on! You’re in for diverse marine life, a pro skipper, and a nice day of fishing.

We have just moved to the Gold Coast and this was a great introduction to the best local spots with tips on gear and bait. Clint is very knowledgeable and we all had a great day out. A nice big flathead was the highlight of the day - just what we wanted!
