Moruya and Tuross River
Some large Perch have been hanging around the hospital rocks in Moruya. The Daiwa double clutch and Silverwolf 40 shad have both been working well. Bream seem to be right down the front of the system at the moment. The hole in the wall and also the rockwall have been producing good bream on cranka crabs. Baits such as prawns and live poddy mullet have been working equally well.
Tuross River is fishing reasonable but anglers are having to work hard for their fish. Some nice Bream and Perch are being caught in the leases, mainly on soft plastics such as Zman grubs and gulp nemisis. The four-ways is still fishing well for Whiting, using squirt worms for bait is your best bet. Some Jewfish have also been enticed on the soft plastics up around the Snake flat area.
Rocks and Beaches
Good numbers of Drummer are coming in off the rocks, Congo and Tuross areas are both fishing well using Cunji. Some quality Bream are also being caught in the same areas on peeled prawns and beach worms.
The Salmon have slowed down a little off the beaches and rockwall but the Tailor have moved in and plenty are being caught on pillies.
The Barracuda are thick in patches and have been frustrating many anglers this week biting through braided lines resulting in many loosing rigs and lures, but most anglers have still been getting a good bag of fish. Flathead are coming in at the 40 metre mark using squid on a paternosta rig. Gummy sharks around the 60 metre mark. Some nice Snapper and Mowies also.
For those of you wanting to venture to the “cold”, here’s our weekly report from Josh of Tackle World Goulburn.
Winter has set in and with force!! Sorry we didn't receive any reports this week. The weekend is looking good, weather wise might be a great time to get out and explore some new areas and try new things before the Grabine fishing comp. If you catch anything, send us a pic - you could end up with a new lure.
The good fishing continues with more good trout being caught. Darrell O'Donnell has led the way with a very nice 44 cm rainbow from the bank, Joel Hazel also caught two nice rainbows from his yak using Tassies, the largest being 38 cm. It’s the best time to catch a Trout they love the cold water! Using powerbait or worms from the bank is your best bet unless you want to cover some ground with lures from your boat or yak them, I’d be using some Tassies or Rapalas.
Not a lot of reports this week. There have been a few reddies caught up from the weir using light blades and Entice hybrid blades, most of these fish are bigger due to being caught deeper. Most fresh water fish are very inactive through the winter months working your lures slowly are the best ways to catch a few.
Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
