Your up to date fishing report courtesy of the team at Tackle World Moruya Moruya River
The river has fished well for a mixed bag this week! Whiting are moving around the sand flats throughout the system and surface lures like Jackson poppers and Bassday sugapens are working a treat. Fresh or live baits like worms and nippers are also working very well.
Flathead are also quite spread out and they are being caught from Preddy’s wharf to well up past the hospital. Blue bait and white pilchards are working well for bait. Daiwa double clutch hard bodied lures in 75 and 95 have also caught plenty.
The Moruya bridge area is fishing well during the night, with estuary perch, bream and flathead all caught using both bait and soft plastics. Night time fisho’s have also reported good catches of mulloway off Quarry Wharf.
Mulloway have been on the bite in several of the deeper holes in Tuross over the past few days. Live and fresh baits have worked best, but a few have also come on Lunds squid and 100mm paddle tail soft plastics.
Whiting are taking a liking to the Jackson pygmy poppers over the flats between the four-ways and Turlinjah. Graham and John enjoyed a beautiful morning on Tuross landing whiting (see instagram for pics), bream, flathead and tailor, all on Daiwa double clutches and Jackson Pygmy poppers.
Flathead are being caught all throughout the system at the moment. Soft plastics like the Storm 360 GT prawns working great this week.
Rocks and beaches
Some nice bream, flathead and whiting are coming in off beaches at Moruya, Tuross and Congo. Beach worms have been the bait of choice. Check out the “gutters” before heading out for a fish – last time we checked the beaches were looking excellent, but as we all know, it doesn’t take much to change gutters.
Luderick have been caught off the rocks in Tuross on prawns and a few nice size bream also.
Squid have started to show up again around the south Broulee and Moruya Heads areas. Pink coloured jigs reportedly working best.
Red's have been coming in just off Moruya roughly 2 kms out this week using pillies and squid for bait. The gulp range of soft plastics are also working great. Out a little wider at roughly 70 metres, anglers are having great success jigging for snapper. The storm Koika rage of micro jigs have been freshly stocked instore and working extremely well.
Plenty of Flathead around the 55cm mark are being caught in close at roughly 20 to 25 metres of water. Out the front of North heads/Windsock beach has been a hotspot this past week.
Check out the whales off any of the headlands – they are frolicking and enjoying a great time!!
