Some good size bream are moving in and out of the Moruya river mouth at the moment. The best way to target them is casting metal vibes and/or cranka crabs in the deep channel and along the rockwall.
Quarry wharf is still holding good schools of Tailor. Pillies, blue bait and white bait have all been working well.
Perch are still hitting the surface early morning and late afternoon around the hospital rocks area. Jackson pygmy poppers are working extremely well!
The timber snags west of the highway bridge are holding some decent perch and bream. Zman grubs and slim swimz are very affective on a lightly weighted jig head.
The whiting have slowed down a little but a few are still being caught around the four-ways particularly on a run out tide. Fresh baits such as worms and nippers are a must.
Good numbers of flathead are being caught down towards the front of the system on the sandflats but most being just undersized. Be sure to measure all your fish carefully.
Rocks and Beaches
Drummer have been coming in off the rocks at One Tree Point using Cunji as bait.
Some big bream and the odd whiting are being caught off the beaches at both Tuross and North heads. Beach worms and peeled prawns have been the bait of choice.
Moruya breakwall is the place to go for salmon and tailor. Casting metal slugs off the wall has been working great this week.
Josh, from Tackle World Goulburn has supplied us with the following freshwater report.
Great weather saw a few anglers out and about, Mike Drackis spent the weekend fishing around Websters and caught well over a dozen yellas on black grubs. He also caught a few carp from the bank using worms. The weekend is looking good weather wise, so it 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!
Great weather, but limited fish. Pejar was a little quieter this week with only one report received despite the great weather. We don't know if it was the pressure change or everyone decided to do something else. Tony Williams reported one rainbow on worms fishing on the eastern side of the powerlines. If your heading out this weekend try that same area it’s very deep there and easy to get to. If you prefer lures, a tassie devil is a must - if your a bait fisho worms or powerbait will serve you well.
Not a lot of reports this week, Theres 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..."
