With the warmer weather rolling in, the water temperature is slowly rising and the fish are becoming a little more active and spread throughout the system.
Tackle World VIP member Greg landed a nice 65cm flathead in the upper reaches of the Moruya river using Gulp nemesis in camo colour.
The rocks around the hospital are producing some estuary perch (early morning and late evening) using grub tail soft plastics and Jackson's Ebi panic surface lures.
The rockwall and channel east of Preddy’s wharf is fishing very well for many species at the moment with reports of tailor, trevally, bream, flathead and the odd pinkie, all caught using both bait and lures. Cranka crabs and FG blades for the lure anglers. Prawns, pillie cubes and beach worms for the bait anglers.
The whole system has been fishing well for flathead lately. From the sand flats near the river mouth all the way up to the four-ways and beyond. Soft plastic of choice has been the gulp swimming mullet in both nuclear chicken and pumpkin seed. Live poddy mullet, frozen white bait and tuna filets are also working well.
Bream are on the bite around the edges of the oyster leases with many having great success using the new Jackson pygmy shad and pygmy crank. The Jackson range is dynamite in our local systems, made in Japan and very reasonably priced.
Rocks and Beaches
Salmon and tailor are being caught along most of the beaches using both pillies and blue bait. The Moruya breakwall is also fishing well for salmon and tailor with reports of some anglers spinning up nice fish on metal slices.
Whiting are starting to liven up off the beach using beach worms for bait and pre made Instinct Whiting rigs.
Some good size groper and drummer have been caught off the rocks this week north of Moruya, crabs and peeled prawn have been the bait of choice.
Unfortunately due to strong winds as of late we do not have any offshore reports this week.
Tight Lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
