Moruya and Tuross River
With the water temperature decreasing the fishing has slowed down in both systems as of late. Light and long fluorocarbon leaders are a must under these clear water winter conditions.
Bream are still hanging around the front of the system near the entrance. Fresh baits like worms and yabbies are working well. Luderick are being caught around the hole in the wall at Moruya and also in the oyster leases at Tuross.
The flathead bite has slowed down a lot in both Moruya and Tuross with only the odd one being caught in the shallows.
Estuary perch are thick in Moruya and Tuross. The hospital rocks area and the highway bridges have been holding good numbers.
Jack and I have just got off the water and enjoyed a great catch and release session landing trevally, bream and flathead. These fish were caught around the leases on Atomic Hardz and Squidgy Bio Tuf’s. I have put the photos on Instagram if you would like to view them.
Rocks and Beaches
The drummer bite hasn't slowed up and down the coast with reports of some good numbers coming in off the rocks using cunji.
Divers have reported plenty of crayfish around at the moment. If getting in the water isn't your thing, our quality locally made cray pots have also been very productive.
The salmon, tailor and bream fishing has been great off the beaches at Moruya, Bingi and Tuross using baits like Pillies and spinning with lures.
The inshore bombies around the Pedro Point area have fished well for snapper on soft plastics. Five inch Gulp jerk shads in Nuclear and BBQ chicken have worked well.
Flathead are being caught in the 20-30 metre mark just off Windsock in reasonable numbers. Pillies and squid have been the bait of choice.
The reefs are producing some nice snapper on pillies live baits and jigs. Some good size mowie and nanagai have also been caught.
The tuna are out in force from Eden all the way up to JB, with reports of one boat (Gav from Tackle World Nowra) having a 5 way hook up on Wednesday. Some fish of over 100kg cleaned, coming off the commercial boats. Lots of albacore in the mix also.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
