Your Tackle World Moruya Fishing report - August 24th

Your up to date fishing report from Tackle World Moruya

Moruya and Tuross Rivers

Moruya river has seen some nice luderick caught this week using live yabbies around the bridge pylons. Light 3 and 4lb leaders have been the key to success in the clear water.

Perch are still biting around the bridge area also, keeping in mind it is closed season until the 31st of this month and all must be released.

Flathead are being caught in the shallow back lakes of Tuross on soft plastics such as 100 mm Squidgie Bio Tough fish. Targeting the same area using small longshank hooks and fresh beach worms has also seen some nice whiting caught.

The oyster racks have produced some nice bream but it has been very tough bite. Gulp Nemisis seems to be working well this time of the year.

Rocks and beaches

Congo beach has fished well for salmon. Pillies and lures have both been equally successful and plenty of fish are being caught.

Good reports of Drummer coming in off the rocks in several spots up and down the coast. Moruya Heads, Binji and Potato Point are good areas to target. Peeled prawns have been very effective on the drummer and a few large groper have also been landed using the same bait. The squid have been a little slow but a few are still being caught in these same areas.

Crayfish and Abalone have been on the menu for the few divers that have braved the cold weather and our locally made lobster pots are also working great.


The weather hasn't been very favourable for offshore anglers as of late but the few that got out early enough to beat the wind had successful sessions in close on the snapper. Pedro Point area has produced fish using baits like pillies and California squid. Soft plastics like Gulp jerk shads in BBQ chicken and pink shine have also worked well.

Windsock beach just off Moruya has been a good spot for flathead. Drifting baits like pillies and squid in roughly 30 metres has been good to a few anglers when weather has permitted.

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