Moruya Tackle World report

Moruya and Tuross River

Water temperatures have dropped, the water is super clear and the fishing has been tough. The key to success this time of the year is "Fish light to get the bite" light fluorocarbon leaders like Instinct XTS and Dog tooth FC will put you in with a good chance.

Moruya river has been fishing well at night around the bridge pylons. Perch are schooling in good numbers and are easily tempted to a surface bite using the Tackle World exclusive Ebi Panic Prawns.

Tuross River has been fishing extremely well for Whiting in many of the shallow back lakes and also around the four-ways. Fresh bait such as Nippers and worms should get you hooked up.

The bream have been very flighty in these clear conditions. When the wind is up anglers are having good success fishing shallow banks and sandflats with the ProLure s36 crank. When the winds not blowing and the water is glassed out you will find them holding extremely tight to structures like oyster leases and fallen trees. Accurate casting of the ProLure grubtail on a 1/32 to 1/24 oz jig head has been deadly under these conditions. The same method has also seen good size Perch boated.

Rocks and Beaches

There are plenty of squid being caught in the Congo and Bingi area at the moment. The Ika jig in glowbug colour is working well early mornings and late afternoons.

The northern side of Moruya breakwall is the place to go for Salmon and Tailor. Spinning with Arma metal slices has been working well for some anglers, others opting to use a gang hook rig and pillies are also doing well.

Unfortunately due to rough seas and big swell this past weekend we haven't had any offshore reports this week.

Tight Lines my friends and remember "every day's a good day for fishing..."
