Great catches of bream are being caught throughout the river using freshly pumped nippers or mullet fillets. For the lure tosses CRANKA crabs are working around the rocky edges with surface lures like the panic prawns and suga pens are catching fish on the flats down the front of the system. Shallow diving hard bodies like Atomic hardz crank 38 and prolure 36 crank are also working over the weed beds. Flathead are being caught from Ryans creek down to Preddys wharf drifting live poddies or throwing soft plastics like the 100 mm bloodworm wrigglers.
Tuross is starting to fire back up as the dirty water clears with flathead up to 86 cm and bream to 34 cm caught in the recent comp. Graham and Jack had a good session the other day in catching flathead and bream on surface poppers with plenty of bream around the oyster leases. Jewies are still being caught in the deeper holes down the front with some reports of a few fish being caught above the highway bridge.
Rocks and Beaches
Great reports this week of large tailor and salmon being caught off the breakwall using Strada Howler 120 mm stick baits. Squid are being caught up around Broulee with some big drummer being caught around Moruya Heads and also down around the Bingie area. Bream and whiting are being caught along most beaches, find a deep gutter and use fresh beach worms for best results.
The seas haven't been too friendly of late, but now that they have settled down good numbers of sand flathead are being caught from Broulee down to Congo - squid and fish bait are your best choice. Out wider on the reefs, snapper, mowies, pigfish and sharks are coming in.
Tight lines and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
Team Tackle World Moruya
The following report is provided by Josh, from Tackle World Goulburn.
Mixed results over the weekend, with Josh spending both Saturday and Sunday up the Abercrombie with little to show for his efforts - one lonely cod and a few carp using gangster mother froggers and jackal tn60s. Des and Josh White fared much better fishing the Lachlan spinning the edges with 3/4oz Mother froggers landing two very nice cod in the 80cm bracket. If heading to the dam the Lachlan is your best bet trolling big spinner baits or casting smaller ones from the bank will serve you well. There’s no shortage of hungry carp - good opportunity to clean up a few try fishing for them on fly - its a blast!
Bit quiet this week with very few reports mainly due to the change in pressure. Only one fish reported this week - a nice Rainbow trout caught below the old church off St Stephens road using powerbait. No Bass reported. With the weather change and a rising Barometer this weekend spells fish. The bass will be hitting poppers early morning and late evening, I would suggest breaking out the Tiemco soft cicadas. Time to dust off the fly rod and break out some nymphs or streamers for a few trout in the shallows.
More good reports of both Cod & Silvers in the lower reaches near the boat shed. James Wilkins reported two Cod both around 40cm using a No2 Stumpjumper. The redfin are still being caught in numbers in most parts of the river and ponds. If fishing for reddies this weekend, try a Finesse Stumpjumper around the weed edges - if your after cod, a No2 Stumpjumper will bring success.
