The fishing has been pretty good in Moruya this past week.
The sand flats near the bridge are fishing well for many species such as bream, whiting and flathead. Sugarpen and Jackson surface lures are working great!
Luderick are being caught on the northern side of the river near the airport on both peeled prawns and weed.
The backwaters at South Head have produced some good fish. Whiting, bream and flathead have all been caught using fresh beach worms and live yabbies for bait.
Flathead are biting down in Tuross and they are being caught anywhere from the highway bridge to the river mouth. Four inch gulp nemesis in pearl watermelon is working extremely well. Baits like pillies and prawns are also working well.
The surface bite for whiting has been pretty hot around the four-ways. Sugarpens have been working great and a stinger assist hook upgrade to the rear will make for a much better hook up rate.
Bream are being caught in the channel down the front on baits like mullet fillet and prawns. Metal blades and Cranka crabs are also working well in the deeper water.
Rocks and Beaches
The beaches are fishing reasonably well at the moment and a variety of species are being caught. Good size whiting and bream have been biting on beach worms.
Some nice size salmon are also coming in off the beach. Most anglers have been using pillies for bait when targeting the salmon.
Reports of several squid caught this week off the rocks at South Broulee using white glow IKA squid jigs.
Kingfish have been bitting offshore near Jimmies Island. Jigs are working well and there is some sizable fish amongst them with reports of a 14 kg model speared around this area.
The reefs off Moruya are producing all your typical reef species including some very nice size snapper and mowie. Freshly caught squid and Lunds Californian squid are working great.
Plenty of sand flathead are also hanging around just off Moruya in good numbers. Drifting using pillies and squid for bait is working a treat.
