Moruya River Flathead have been quite plentiful this week in the Moruya river. Ryan's creek inlet has been a “hot spot” to target them using soft plastics like the 100mm bloodworm wriggler. Perch, luderick, bream and flathead have all been caught this past week around the town bridge on both soft plastics and hardbodied lures. Baits such as beach worms have also worked very well. A few whiting are starting to school up on the airport flats and have been caught using fresh beach worms and live yabbies. Tuross River Jewfish are on the bite down the front of the system targeting the deeper sections of the channel's. Fresh baits like squid and tailor have produced good fish this week. The squidgies range of soft plastics have also accounted for several catches, with 140mm bloodworm wrigglers being the most popular. Flathead are being caught from the river mouth all the way up to the highway bridge on both bait and soft plastics. Whiting have been hanging around the four-ways and also upstream towards the bridge. Squirt worms have been working extremely well. Rocks and Beaches Whiting, bream and flathead have all been caught off both North Head and Tuross beaches on baits such as worms and prawns. Metal blades/vibes have also been catching a few. Moruya breakwall is still fishing well for tailor and there's some big ones around. Pillies have been the best bait as of late. The squid have started to show up again at South Broulee with both IKA and Yamashita jigs working a treat. Offshore There are plenty of flathead being caught offshore at the moment along Windsock beach in 30 metres. Snapper are still hanging around in close at around 15 metres of water off south head and Pedro point area. Squid and pillies for bait and gulp, jerk shads for soft plastics. Between Broulee and Burrie Point is fishing well also for flathead and snapper using Instinct snapper snatches and squid. The reefs are fishing reasonably well for mowie, nanagai and snapper and the odd Gummy shark also.
