The system is fishing well for flathead at the moment with consistent 40 to 55 cm duskys being caught, mainly on grub tail soft plastics. Ryans creek inlet and also between quarry wharf and preddys warf have been the most productive areas.
Good bream are still hitting the surface, the hole in the wall backwaters is the place to go and the Sugarpen 70f is working well. Good bream are also being caught along the rockwall using cranka crabs and bait such as mullet fillet.
Above: Plenty of good bream around the bridge pylons using cranka crabs
There are still some big Salmon hanging around in the front of the system and they are great fun on light gear! Surface poppers and metal slices are working extremely well as are pilchards for the bait fishos.
There are plenty of bream hanging around the oyster racks in the system with the Daiwa double clutch proving to be a deadly lure of choice. Freshly pumped nippers are also working very well.
Flathead are still scattered around the place with reports of some big girls landed around horse island. Gulp soft plastics or small pilly’s are the way to go.
Just over the road at Coila the prawns are still running and a lot of locals have been catching a good feed to take home.
Rocks and Beaches
Moruya break wall, South Broulee, Pedro Point - take your pick as they are all still fishing well. Salmon and Tailor off the wall on pilly’s and metals. Some good bream are being caught off the beach on pilly’s also.
South Broulee is producing plenty of squid off the rocks. Some good salmon, bonito and smaller kingfish as well.
Great reports offshore this week! Montague Island has seen anglers catching mowies, snapper, flathead and kingfish.
Some great marlin have been caught around the Tuross canyons.
Moving further north, Dolphin fish are hanging around the fads with live bait working the best at the moment.
The tollgates are also fishing well for snapper, mowies and kings.
Josh from Tackle World Goulburn brings us the following freshwater report:
Hard Work. Not the way we like to start a report but that's how it is at present. Jake Jaccobson reported 3 nice cod all on lures but had to put some hours in. We spent two days out there for only one of each species Cod, Yella & Carp. Steven George fared much better Jigging grubs in the trees landing over 20 fish for the weekend. This weekend I’d suggest worms from the bank or attack the trees with Black grubs for the best results.
The Trout are on the move, Steven Jankoski, Brett Feld & Scott Marcinkowski have all been caching good fish at Pejar. Lures are doing the job nicely, with most fish being caught on Rapala originals and Jackson Trout tunes. Its a great time of year to fish for trout, as it’s not too cold and they are active. I’d suggest fishing from the bank - try using some powerbait or worms or cast a tassie devil. If you have a boat or kayak troll some Rapalas or Jackson's.
A few good reports this week. The big redfin seem to be dominating at present with many fishing being better than 30 cm. Tom Henry reported 3 nice silvers near the old boat shed using a Strada Feral. (Just remember Silver Perch are protected in rivers and must be returned). Using lures on the Redfin always brings good results - try using a Jackson Reaction bomb or Instinct - twitch the lighter the better.
Tight Lines my friends Team Tackle World Moruya
