Water temperatures are up and the fish have become very active!! Whiting up to 40 cm, flathead up to 70 cm and some good size bream have all been caught this week.
Surface lures like the Jackson panic prawns and Bassday Sugarpens are working great for many species such as whiting, bream and flathead. The sand flats near the hospital and at the bridge have both been fishing extremely well on the surface.
The channel near Preddy’s wharf is producing some nice bream and flathead on baits like prawns and worms. The backwaters are also fishing well for all mentioned species on both baits and lures.
Good size bream are being pulled out of the oyster leases throughout the system at the moment. ProLure s36 shallow hardbodies and ProLure sf62 pencils are working great.
Plenty of flathead are being caught around the sand flats towards the front of the system using soft plastics like the Squidgies fish and Gulp 4 inch nemesis. Live poddy mullet have also produced a couple of big girls this week.
Potato Point flats are holding schools of whiting - Bassday Sugarpens are working best, but fresh beach worms and live yabbies are also catching a few.
Rocks and Beaches
Moruya breakwall has been fishing well on the beach side for salmon, tailor, whiting and bream. Full pillies are working best for salmon and tailor, beach worms and peeled prawns for the whiting and bream.
Coila and Tuross beaches are also fishing well for the same species. A good pair of polarized sunglasses will greatly assist you when locating the gutters to fish.
Kingfish are starting to show up from Broulee all the way up to the bay with a few sizeable fish amongst them.
King George Whiting have been bitting in 60 metres of water just off Batemans Bay with one in particular measuring 60 cm and weighing over 1kg!
The reefs off Moruya are producing plenty of quality fish including some very nice reds and morwongs.
If you’re chasing a nice feed of flathead over Christmas, then Windsock beach is the place to go. The 40 metre mark has produced plenty of good sized table fish this past week.
Team Tackle World Moruya would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a great New Year. If your travelling on the roads, please take it easy and make it safely to your destination.
