Flathead are being caught in the channel down stream of Preddy’s wharf. Both baits and soft plastics are working well. Pillies and mullet fillets for bait, gulp swimming mullet for soft plastics.
The hole in the wall has been fishing well for bream on the run out tide. Baits like mullet fillet and poddy mullet have been catching a few nice size fish. Cranka crabs have also worked very well.
Whiting have been hanging around most of the sandflats throughout the river. Bassday sugapens have been very productive this past week.
The four-ways in Tuross has produced plenty of fish lately. Flathead, bream and whiting are being caught using live yabbies for bait.
Snake flat is holding big school's of small whiting and they are great fun to catch using Jackson surface poppers.
The sand flats down the front of the system near the boat ramp have been fishing well for flathead and whiting. If bait fishing, try beach worms or mullet fillets. Soft plastics like the Squidgies bloodworm wriggler in 100mm is also working well.
A few jewfish have been landed this week in the deeper sections down the front. Fresh squid has been the bait of choice.
Rocks and Beaches
Tailor are being caught in good numbers off the Moruya breakwall at the moment. Pillies on a gang hook rig should get you onto a few.
Some nice bream and whiting are coming in off the beaches targeting the deep gutters with beach worms and pippies.
Squid are still being caught all up and down the coast. Broulee, South Head and Congo have all produced a few.
Snapper are being caught around Pedro Point/ Congo area using lunds squid and pillies. The reefs are also fishing well for mowie, nanagai and reds and some large sharks have also been hooked.
Windsock and Tuross beaches have both fished well for flathead. Drifting baits along the bottom has caught plenty.
There are still plenty of Marlin out wide with reports of good numbers caught all up and down the coast.
The following freshwater report is proudly brought to us by Josh, owner, Tackle World Goulburn.
If you’re a lure fisherman be prepared for a hard slog. The cod have gone quiet on the lure front from all reports. If you’re after yellas you’re in luck, good numbers around structure - rocky banks and trees. Live yabbies and black grubs will bring quick action and good fun on light gear - try fishing 6-8lb to test your angling skills.
Frustrating is a word often used to describe Pejar Dam! This week this word stood tall, everything was in line for a good weekend but it wasn't to be - all reports were no fish. Even seasoned bass fisho’s weren't catching anything! With that said, Pejar can turn around overnight, we’re expecting cooler weather, so I would be targeting the trout using Tassies and Stumpjumper finesse lures. If bait fishing, catchall crawlers will do the trick. Try fishing on the western side for the best results.
Good reports from the Mulwaree Ponds until we got the freak storm that dumped water flat out. The rivers are now running dirty - it will take a good week for this to change but that shouldn't stop you from having a fish. Try using lures that are shiny, like Jackson Trout deeps, warlock 52 pros or Eco-gear Vibes these will attract feeding reddies and supply you with a bit of fun!
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
