Tackle World Moruya Weekly fishing report Moruya River Some nice size whiting and bream are getting caught throughout the system especially down the front on the sand flats opposite Preddys boat ramp and up in the backwaters with pro staff member Nathan getting a few decent sized fish on the suga pen 70f. Luderick are coming in off the rockwalls around Ryans creek and further down in the hole in the wall. Some nice perch and bream are getting caught off the snags up around Sherlocks creek and beyond.
Some good catches of bream have been coming in from over around the drop-offs near Potato Point along with some nice flathead. Graham and John had a good session on the bream and whiting with some nice flathead thrown in for a good mixed catch using diving lures and some surface for the whiting.
Rocks and Beaches
Some nice drummer are getting caught in the washes around Pedro rocks and off Congo point - try using cunjievoi, or peeled prawns which are also producing some nice fish - be prepared for some tough battles with these hard fighters! Some nice schools of salmon and tailor have been hanging around off the breakwall and along the windsock beach with pilchards being the best bait, but if you like spinning metal slices have been working earlier in the mornings. Some good sized bream and whiting are hanging around off Pedro and Congo beach - using beach worms should get them on the chew. Best beach for worming at the moment is the windsock beach on a dead low tide.
The bigger kingfish have finally turned up with a few metre plus being caught during the past week with fresh, or live squid being the bait of choice. A few lucky anglers have even managed to catch some on poppers.
There have been some nice dolphin fish hanging around the fads up around the Toll gates at Batemans bay, also reports of Marlin being in close chasing the squid.
For those that also like freshwater fishing, Josh from Tackle World Goulburn has provide us with the following report.
The dam has quietened a little due to weather changes but we are still getting good reports. Jake Jakobsson reported 10 cod ranging from 40-60cm using Predatec Marty & 1oz spinnerbaits trolling in the main basin in 8mts of water. Nic Vass reported a few cod up the Abercrombie on Gangster Mother Froggers and a couple of yellas from the trees. Rob Arthur also caught a dozen cod fishing near three tree island mostly on spinnerbaits. This weekend will be hit or miss with the weather but I would be targeting the trees with black grubs and worms.
Amy & Jeff Curran managed to land 3 very nice rainbows the biggest being 54cm using powerbait on the eastern side of the Powerlines. No Bass reported this week. We would suggest if your planning on fishing the dam this weekend try using powerbait on a suspending rig. If Bass is more your flavor try using a Tiemco creepy shrimp or Strada Zuse 50 over the weed beds near the tower.
We have had a few reports of Cod & Silver perch Fish Kill in the lower reaches near the old boat shed. At this stage we don't know what’s causing this - Fisheries are testing the water for quality - we are hoping its not high pollutants. If you see large numbers of dead fish anywhere please report these to NSW DPI Fisheries. Other parts of the river are fishing very well Chris Cook reported a very nice redfin 49cm using a fat deep diver and Mic Jones caught over a dozen small reddies above the weir using a Red Celta.
Have a great week everybody and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “ Team Tackle World Moruya
