Your Tackle World Moruya Fishing report for May 18th

Your UP TO DATE local fishing report courtesy of the Team at Tackle World Moruya

Moruya River

Some nice bream are being caught in the river at the moment mainly using prawns and squid for bait. Fish around the quarry wharf and Preddy’s wharf area. Flathead are being caught up past the hospital all the way to Kiora bridge - a slow retrieved soft plastic like the squidgy fish 100mm silver fox should do the job for you.


Flatties are being caught around the four ways using deep diving lures like the atomic hardz and Daiwa double clutches. Fish around the edge of the drop offs and use plenty of “S Factor” for best results. Bream are being caught in the oyster leases using both deep diving hard bodies and lightly weighted soft plastics like the pro lure yabbies. Whiting are hanging around the four ways - best bait for these guys is freshly pumped squirt worms or nippers.

Rocks and Beaches

Salmon and tailor are being caught all over our coast line, but the stand out areas seem to be airport beach and Congo down to Tuross. The best way to catch these fish is using a paternoster rig with a surf popper on the top and ganged pilchards on the bottom. Arma metal slices and brass twisties also work a treat with these fish. Some nice bream and flatties are being caught in the gutters along race course beach and up to Broulee - beach worms and mullet fillet are the best baits. Nice drummer, groper and squid are being caught off south heads and down around Bingie. For the divers there are good numbers of lobsters hiding in their holes so if you're after a great feed we have INSTORE locally made lobster pots.


Good numbers of snapper and the occasional kingie are being caught out around the 50-60 metres of water off Pedro Point and down to Tuross. Try using tuna fillets , pilchards or lunds blue box calamari as bait. Flatties are being caught out off the wind sock in 25 metres of water, try using fish bait for these fish .

Tight lines my friends and “remember every day’s a good day for fishing …”
