Moruya and Tuross River
Tuross has produced some Jewfish this week drifting the deep channel near the boat shed. Live baits and a slack tide has seen a few boated.
Some large Perch have been hanging around the oyster leases and have been caught using lightly weighted grubs in motor oil and watermelon red flake colours.
Flathead are being caught in the shallow back lakes on soft plastics such as 100mm bloodworm wrigglers. Targeting the same area using small longshank hooks and fresh beach worms has also seen some nice Whiting caught.
Moruya has been very slow going as of late and has also filled up with a very slimy weed making lure fishing quite difficult. The Perch are still biting around the bridge area, keeping in mind it is closed season and all must be released.
Rocks and Beaches
Some nice size squid are coming in off the rocks on the Ika range of squid jigs at south Broulee and Bingi area. Moruya breakwall has been fishing well for Tailor using a gang hook setup and full pillies. Windsock beach has produced plenty of Salmon this week on pillies and a paternosta surf rig.
The bar crossings have been quite rough lately . If your planning on heading outside make sure all your safety equipment is up to scratch. Life jackets over the bar and log on and off with marine rescue.
For those of you who enjoy the cold this weeks fresh water report is provided by Josh, from Tackle World Goulburn.
Zero reports this week, but now is the time to get your tackle box out of hibernation and have a look at what you need for the upcoming Grabine Freshwater Classic - its set to be bigger than ever this year and we are again very proud to sponsor the carp division and the eradication of this noxious fish.
The Trout fishing has again been great with good catches reported this week. Gerald Franklyn from Blacktown caught a very nice 55cm rainbow using catchall crawlers on the western side of the dam while Tom Adams landed 3 small rainbow from the wall near the tower using a tassie devil. It’s so good to see the dam performing again.
David Collins has been setting the river on fire with a number of reddies over the 40cm mark and in his dressing gown before breaky - great work Dave love it! We have had many reports this week, all the fish being caught are large and mostly on jigs and blades and the odd few on bait - its a great time to fish the river for the larger fish just remember to fish above the weirs.
Tight Lines my friends and remember "every day's a good day for fishing..."
