Your up-to-date fishing report from the team at Tackle World Moruya Moruya River
Some large flathead have been caught this past week around the hospital rocks. Bigger shallow diving lures and soft plastics in the 90 to 100 mm range have proven deadly on the bigger fish.
The flats opposite the hospital are holding schools of whiting and surface lures are working a treat. Fresh baits like nippers are also working extremely well.
The channel along the rock wall near Preddy’s wharf has fished well for a variety of species including bream, flounder, flathead and tailor. Gulp soft plastics, metal vibes and baits like mullet fillets and prawns are all working.
The surface bite has been good around the shallow edges of the system. Jackson pygmy poppers have been working exceptionally well on many species including whiting, bream and flathead including a 99 cm big girl that was caught photographed and released this week.
Mulloway are still being caught around the boat shed on a slack tide using both live and fresh baits. Good size bream and tailor are also coming in from the same area on baits like prawns and beach worms.
Rocks and beaches
Some nice whiting and bream are coming off some of the beaches up and down the coast. Live beach worms are working best for bait but if you can't get your hands on any live bait our frozen worms will still catch you a few.
Salmon are on the bite along North Heads beach at Moruya and Arma metals are working great for those that like throwing lures. For the bait fisherman a paternosta rigged with gang hooks and pillies should get you onto some good fish.
South Broulee has been producing good numbers of squid off the rocks and a few are also being caught around the Bingi area.
Some decent tuna have been caught out wide this week including stripies and yellowfin.
Two mile reef just off Moruya has seen some nice snapper landed using soft plastics like the gulp 6.5" nemisis in glow and pink shine - 4lb has been the average size as of late.
The flathead beds off Windsock beach have been producing great numbers of large flathead simply drifting baits like pillie cubes and/or Lunds California squid in roughly 30 metres.
Tight lines my friends and remember “every day’s a good day for fishing … “
